108th Birthday


Longtime Greenville resident Victor Kallal is celebrating a very special birthday.

He is 108 years old Tuesday, December 6.

Mr. Kallal moved to Greenville in 1939 to be the first manager of Southwestern Electric Cooperative. He and his wife raised a family with several children.

Jim Kallal, one of the sons, said that from 1940 to 1970 there was at least one Kallal child, and often more than one, attending local schools.

In recent years, Victor Kallal has been living at Faith Countryside Homes in Highland.

Jim Kallal said the family is still able to enjoy visits with Vic. He said Vic also eats three meals a day with his friends.
