Tuesday was a big day for one Apple Valley man. 

Born in 1917, Floyd Skinner turned 106 years old.

At his Apple Valley senior residence, a big birthday party was held in Skinner’s honor. 

People wore pins of Skinner, along with his favorite color yellow.

Skinner’s secret to a long life is to stay away from cigarettes. 

“I did not smoke and I think that’s my key for long living right there,” Skinner said. 

Skinner admits to having an occasional drink over the years.
