Thanks to Jeremiah in Salem for this one.
Vincent Dransfield lives life on his own terms, and that’s not something many 108-year-olds can say. He’s still sharp and quick-witted and is still driving in more ways than one.
Vincet is also the oldest firefighter at the Little Falls Volunteer Fire Department. Not as active as he once was, he’s still on the roster at Engine Company No. 3.
His contributions and pictures from the last 84 years with the department are plastered on the firehouse walls. He’s proud of showing his accomplishments to his great-grandchildren.
Vincent is also independent. He lives on his own, does his own grocery shopping and doesn’t take daily medications, only and over-the-counter medication when he has some knee pain.
Vincent turns 109 in March, and all he wants for his birthday is for his family to come over to his house and spend time with him, which they happily plan on doing.
