West Fargo resident Lester Hazer opened Hazer's Auto & Truck Parts in 1969 and has been working there ever since.

He was in his mid-50s at that time.


Two weeks ago, he celebrated his 100th birthday and shows no signs of stopping.

"We have to check with the Guinness Book of Records, but he's probably the oldest wrecker driver in the world," Lester's son Duane said. "You don't meet too many people now that were born in a sod house."
