It seemed like a long way since 1994 when Houston Pritchett was in the Philippines, during World War II. When he was about 80 years old, he attended a senior gathering, and there was plenty of dancing. Right then and there, Houston fell in love.
Even after hitting the century mark, this 102-year-old veteran’s love for dancing never left! In fact, he only stopped when he recently had a heart attack. Houston underwent major heart surgery, and with the help of cardiac rehab, he hopes one day that he could hit the dance floor again.
“Yeah, I was real worried about it. I’m still worried about it. And I’m waiting, I think it’s the 29th I’ll see this doctor again, and I’m going to remember to ask him when I get back to dancing,” Houston said.
We hope to see you on the dance floor soon, sir!
