Lee Strawn may be 100, but, he said, “there’s still a lot of living to do.”
Strawn has worked as a volunteer at Good Neighbors food pantry for nearly 40 years and throughout these many decades he doesn’t view his volunteerism as work. “It’s not a job, it’s fun,” he said.
He said his wife volunteered for years before he got involved, then she passed the volunteer bug along to him. “It’s been a great 37 years, I’ve seen a lot of nice people and hopefully we’ve taken care of some pretty needy families,” Strawn said.
Strawn retired from Firestone after 45 years, and he looks at his current opportunity as a chance to give back a little bit. “I traveled between 2 and 3 million miles in the air for Firestone. It’s been fun, I’ve had an enjoyable life.”
Other than a minor facial industry he recently sustained while woodworking, Strawn said he didn’t feel that much different when turning 100, other than “just going a little slower. I’m still able to run the snowblower and the lawn mower.”
