CCRP Honours 103 Year Old Samuel Green

“Eat well, sleep well, no stress” is the secret to long life, according to 103 year old Samuel Green, seen here with his wife of 58 years, Thyce Green. The Greens are seen at their home in Duhaney Park on May 22, when the Caribbean Community of Retired Persons (CCRP) joined with the National Council for Senior Citizens (NCSC) to honour Mr. Green for Jamaica’s National Centenarian’s Day, which fell on the Sunday of that week. The CCRP presented the centenarian with a gift basket donated by National Baking Company. The Founder of the Duhaney Park Citizens Association, Mr. Green is a much loved leader in that community, where he has lived for the past 57 years. He and his wife have two adult children, 12 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Samuel Green was born on Christmas Day 1908 in Paynes Town, New Market, St. Elizabeth, and attended Carmel Elementary School. A former machine operator, he retired in 1973. Mr. Green’s positive approach to life as a senior is a wonderful example of the CCRP motto, ‘Life to the Fullest.’ He continues to be active in his community, enjoys gardening, playing dominoes, home improvement and horse racing. He is also deeply interested in trade unionism, and loves sharing his stories.
