WORDS OF WISDOM FROM THE LATE MR. OVERTON: THE 112-YEAR OLD VETERAN

Barack Obama with Richard Overton and Earlene Love Karo

Richard Arvin Overton was born May 11, 1906  and passed December 27, 2018. He was an American supercentenarian who at the age of 112 years, 230 days was the oldest verified surviving U.S. World War II veteran and oldest man in the United States. Overton was hospitalized for pneumonia in December 2018. He was placed in a rehabilitation center, where he died on December 27, 2018, aged 112 years old.

In this short film, Overton’s genuine sincerity, hope and love for life permeated through the screen. Although he jas passed, Richard’s word’s and wisdom live on. Check out some of these jewels he dropped in the film and as he said if you don’t listen, that’s your bad luck!”
