At the age of 100, World War II veteran Gardner Watts is still constantly on-the-go, and he has become a fixture in the village of Suffern.

For 36 years, he was a history teacher at Suffern High School, winning the Fullbright Education Award.

His name, and the name of his wife of 64 years, Josephine, are etched in the WWII memorial in Suffern for their service during the war.
