97-Year-Old Coca-Cola Employee Shares His Secret To Longevity

FORT SMITH (KFSM) — Fred Kirkpatrick has been working at the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Fort Smith for nearly 80 years.

He’s worn a number of hats in his time with the company, but the 97-year-old is now the archivist and curator of the plant’s museum on the second level.

“I've always been interested in history and I collect stamps, and I collect baseball cards and things like that,” Kirkpatrick said.

So for Kirkpatrick, or Mr. K as many people call him, it was only natural for him to collect old documents and Coca-Cola memorabilia.

“That’s primarily what I do is look after the museum and the archives,” Kirkpatrick said.

Mr. K got his start at Coca-Cola in 1938. At the time, the plant was located at Rogers and 2nd Street across the street from Judge Isaac C. Parker’s courtroom. Kirkpatrick said people were still recovering from the Great Depression.

“I started out just as a clerk in the office,” he said. “Then I became the bookkeeper and the office manager and later on became the operations manager.”

The company moved to the current location on Phoenix Ave. in the 80s and Kirkpatrick said he has seen it evolve over the years. For example, they don’t bottle Coke there anymore.

“We really are just a distributor now, but for more than 90 years we were a bottler,” he said.

At 97 years of age, he explained his secret to a long and healthy life.

“Well I’d like to say it’s because I’ve been drinking Coca-Cola all those years, but probably because I try to keep fit by exercise and eating properly and not smoking.”

He has always worked at Coca-Cola in some capacity except during the years he served in Word War II. He said he has no plans to retire.

LAST PERSON BORN IN 1800S DIES AT 117

'She didn't suffer. I'm happy she didn't suffer but passed away that way, tranquilly'


(Associated Press) Emma Morano, at 117 the world’s oldest person who is also believed to have been the last surviving person born in the 1800s, died Saturday at her home in northern Italy, her physician said.

Dr. Carlo Bava told The Associated Press by phone that Morano’s caretaker had called him to say she had stopped breathing in the afternoon while sitting in an armchair at her home in Verbania, a town on Italy’s Lake Maggiore.

I've commented for a long time that older people, despite clearly knowing that they have less time to live, appear in general to be more patient. Now we know why. If you're not patient, you're pushing up the daisies, instead of sitting on a bench on top of them and enjoying the view!

Village where one in 10 residents live to be 100 says the recipe for success is 'only eating fresh stuff' (and daily sex)

81 villagers out of the 700 living in Acciaroli, Italy, are 100 years old

A village in Italy where more than one in 10 residents reach 100 years old has revealed the secret to their longevity - by 'only eating healthy stuff'.

Scientists have spent the last six months researching why residents living in Acciaroli, a tiny village on the west coast of Italy - 90 miles south of Naples - live for so long. 

Experts have commented on their healthy diet and added that the sexual activity with the elderly living in the village 'appears to be rampant'.
