He said off all of his years, this is one of his happiest yet, and he has one special person to thank for that, his wife.

“I got my wonderful bride with me, we’ve been married for 75 years, she’s the sweetest little girl,” Lowe said. “The best part of it, to begin with, she waited four and a half years for me to get back from overseas and we got married four days after I got back, and we’ve been happy ever since.”

For anyone hoping to make it to 100 years old and be happily married, he has some advice.

“Marry a girl that’s from a good family that grew up on a farm,” Lowe said.

Happy Birthday Harold! And thank you for your service.
