101-year-old WWII veteran with fridge full of beer

- Andrew E. Slavonic turned 101 last week. The World War II Air Force veteran credited his long life to his daily Coors Light habit.

“Around 4:00 p.m., he tells me that it is 4:00 p.m., and it is time for our beer,” his son, Bob Slavonic, said to Fox News.

Once the established beer company heard about Andrew’s enthusiasm for the brew, MillerCoors headed out to McMurray, Penn., to deliver a belated birthday present: a Coors Light branded fridge, completely stocked with – you guessed it – Coors Light.

“On behalf of the entire Coors Light family, we wanted to wish you a Happy 101st Birthday. We wanted to personally thank you for your years of service and being a lifelong fan of Coors Light. We completely agree with your son’s statement – ‘The bluer the mountains are on the can, the better,’” a letter from the company read.
