Default Richard Overton Dies at Age 112

The nation’s oldest living veteran, Richard Overton, has died in Austin, Texas. He was 112 years old. He gave credit to God for his longevity, but he always said cigars and whiskey helped.

“I been smoking cigars from when I was 18 years old, I’m still a smoking ‘em. 12 a day,” he said.

We discussed him here a few years ago:

RIP, Mr. Overton. May you find an endless supply of cigars in heaven!

He had been hospitalized several times in the last year with pneumonia. RIP Mr. Overton.

I saw the articles about Mr. Overton passing away. He was in Pearl Harbor when Japan attacked, and he fought in Iwo Jima. I pray God would comfort his friends and family.
