MICHIGAN CITY — Robert “Bob” Hoerr celebrated his 100th birthday on Monday, just 12 days after he and his wife, Marguerite, celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary.

“They’ve been so kind to have so much going on here that I haven’t had much of a chance to reminisce. It’s been the opposite, I’ve been looking forward,” Bob said shortly before a birthday party in his honor Monday.

God bless both of you. I just lost my wife of 42 years. I could never imagine 75 years, but I was hoping for more.
