FORT WORTH, TEXAS, March 22, 2019 – Louis Cass celebrated his 100th birthday on March 16, 2019, at Trail Lake Nursing and Rehabilitation, where he currently lives.

Mr. Cass was born on March 16, 1919, in Buffalo, New York. He graduated from Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Mr. Cass served in the United States Navy where he was a sharp shooter and over saw a fleet of rescue boats. During his service, Mr. Cass wrote the manual for two submarines at Cape Kennedy. After being honorably discharged from the Navy, he started as an aerospace engineer for Lockheed where he designed the wing attachments for the space shuttles. He later worked for Toastmaster International planning formal gatherings. After retirement, Mr. Cass volunteered for Code Blue with the police.

One of Mr. Cass's favorite memories was in 1951 when he had the honor of meeting Albert Einstein at Princeton University in New Jersey. He heard a speech by Albert Einstein and remembered he wore mismatched socks. Mr. Einstein said he wore mismatched socks “because his feet don't know the difference.”

Mr. Cass enjoyed taking motorcycle trips with his brother to Alaska. His other hobbies included collecting classic cars, attending airplane shows and spending time with his two daughters.

The Trail Lake family began celebrating Mr. Cass's 100th birthday the previous week by having staff and residents bring him 100 gifts a day and ended the week with a party at Trail Lake on his birthday. The party was attended by his friend Ms. Sanoja and his nephew who traveled from Arizona for the special day.
