TRAER, Iowa (KWWL) – If you live in Traer, Iowa there’s a good chance you’ve heard of this guy.
Leroy Whannel is 103 years old and a World War II veteran still working about five days a week.
Now, Leroy’s son Jay Whannel owns the business.
“Really likes the hardware business,” said Jay Whannel.
Leroy stays busy by doing a lot of the banking work at Whannel’s True Value Hardware.
For a while, Leroy worked six days a week at the store when he could still drive. But recently, he stopped driving. That’s when he cut back on hours a bit.
