100th Birthday Celebration Held for Northern Nevadan

Posted: Updated:

Monday a northern Nevadan celebrated turning 100 years old this month.

Senator Dean Heller awarded George Hickey a certficate of recognition for his 100th birthday last Friday, which was celebrated at Park Place Assisted Living in northwest Reno on Monday afternoon.

He was born in Gardnerville in 1913. We asked George how he feels about reaching a century. "Not as quite as fast as I used to be!"

George told us one of the highlights of his life was serving in the Army for eight years during which time he traveled to Burma and was awarded a bronze star.

His son Pat Hickey is a Nevada Assemblyman.
