Indiana State Employee To Retire Next Month At Age 102

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Bob Vollmer has lived a lot of life. He served in World War II, got married the day the war ended, got an engineering degree and eventually joined the Indiana Department of Natural Resources as a surveyor. And he stayed in that job for almost 60 years. Next month, he will retire at the age of 102. Vollmer told WXIN-TV he's going to focus now on reading and farming. He says his lungs are strong but his legs are giving out. I guess your body tells you when it's time to go, he said. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
