105 Years Old and Outliving the Money

105 year old Larry Haubner is hoping donations to his website will help him stay at the retirement home he has lived at for 3 years 105 year old Larry Haubner is hoping donations to his website will help him stay at the retirement home he has lived at for 3 years

Larry Haubner was born on June 14, 1902 in Dubuque, Iowa.

Just watching him, you'd never guess that he's 105-years-old! 

He exercises 45 minutes every day.

The former lumber yard worker and U.S. Army veteran likes to show off his muscles doing walker lifts.

Haubner says, "I have two words: Nutrition and sweat. I know I can't do things a 21-year-old can do, but I feel like it, you know what I mean?"

Haubner lived by himself until just three years ago.

He hurt himself riding a bicycle at age 102.

The Greenfield Assisted living facility in Stafford, Virginia has been his home ever since.

However, his savings account is almost gone.

Even with social security, Haubner can't afford to stay with the people he loves.

"They treat me real well," he says. "I don't know why."

Haubner has no family and now friends and workers from the facility are trying to help.

One person has even started the website www.savelarry.org, so people can make donations.

Even with a discounted rate at the assisted living home, his bills total more than $3,000 a month.

Olga Soehngen, a friend of Haubner says " I don't think Larry thought that he'd live to 105. He had planned on living independently ... His whole life continuing to be in town. But, circumstances are such that he can't. So, we're gonna again continue to do what we can to keep him here."

Haubner is always smiling and making jokes. He won't admit it, but he's very popular with the ladies.

If he leaves, Haubner will go on medicaid and likely have to move into a nursing home.

Everyone here, especially Larry, is hoping the generosity of strangers will keep him right where he is.
