Walter Breuning, who was believed to be the oldest man in the world today, celebrates his 114th birthday on September 21, 2010.

According to records, Walter Breuning was born on Sept. 21, 1896, in Melrose, Minnesota, and moved to Montana in 1918, where he worked as a clerk for the Great Northern Railway for 50 years.

His wife, Agnes, was a railroad telegraph operator from Butte, but died in 1957; and they had no children.

Breuning inherited the throne of being the world’s oldest man in July 2009 after Briton Henry Allingham died at the age of 113.

Walter, whose mind is still extremely sharp today, takes one aspirin each day, and eats two meals a day.

He walks at the halls of the Rainbow Retirement Center every morning, always wearing a suit and tie, according to CBS Affiliate KRTV.

When asked about his advice to people who want to grow old but still feels young, here is what he said.

“If you’re in good health, you’ve got everything there is,” he told the Great Falls Tribune.

“Keep your mind and body busy at all times, don’t eat too much and be good to people.” Breuning added.

Walter Breuning was expected to have cake and deliver a speech at the party that will include Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer and representatives from Guinness World Records.
