Dr. Fred Goldman celebrated his 100th birthday April 12. That means he was born two days before the RMS Titanic hit an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean. But not only has Fred outlived the Titanic by a full century, he is still hale and hearty and enjoying life to the max.
During lunch at the Klein Jewish Community Center in Somerton, his friends were cheering for him and for other senior members whose birthdays also fall in April. At least two of the attendees will be celebrating their 100th birthday within the next year.
