Stan Johnson was born June 25, 1915, and turned 102 last Sunday. He and his wife, Marlene, have been married 42 years. When asked the secret to a long life, he said, “Keep my mouth shut!" Stan joined the Navy less than two weeks before Pearl Harbor was attacked. When Roosevelt raised the value of an ounce of gold from about $17 to $34, Stan started building mining mills. Later, he installed lighting and such things in tall skyscrapers in San Diego, California.
