A Wonderful 100th Birthday for a life well-lived!

On Friday, March 4th, Pedro Tirado, a long-time Washington Heights resident who now lives at Isabella, celebrated his 100th Birthday.  Surrounded by his family, his many friends and his fellow Veterans from the Veteran’s Administration, Pedro was the guest of honor at a party complete with testimonials, awards, music  and plenty of cake.

Born in Puerto Rico, Pedro came to New York as a young man and soon was drafted into the US army in during World War II.  He served in General Patton’s 3rd Army, 4th Armored  Division, Field Artillery, survived the D-Day invasion in Normandy and fought in the Battle of the Bulge.

Returning to New York after the war, he married his long-time sweetheart, and became a devoted father to (2) beautiful daughters who are the “apple of his eye” – and who feel the same about him.

After a successful career in the engineering and export business, Pedro retired and became a favorite presence in his neighborhood, helping others and attending his local Senior Center.

Pedro credits his long life to filling his life with purpose and love – for his country, his family and God.
