LOS MOLINOS - A Los Molinos man is blowing out some triple-digit candles for his birthday.

Ralph Emmons was surrounded by family and friends on Saturday for his 100th birthday celebration.

Emmons was born in Westport, California.

At 6 years old, he moved to Los Angeles, he eventually moved back up north and graduated from Willis High School in 1937.

Action News Now asked Emmons if he had any advice for the younger generations.

“No, they just have to live their life the way they see fit,” Emmons said.

Emmons was a logger in his early days, then during World War II, he remained a logger because the war efforts needed the lumber.

He later moved to Alderpoint where he bought a general store and raised his four children.

Happy birthday Ralph!
