Saturday was quite the special day for a west suburban man as he celebrates his 111th birthday.

Family and friends gathered in Oakbrook Terrace to sing happy birthday to Wash Wesley.

Wesley doesn't let his age slow him down.

He's a deacon at his church, plus he still drives.

"If it ain't one thing, there's always something at the house you can do, always," Wesley said.

Wesley says doctors have told him he can drink and eat anything he wants, but he says he limits himself.
