Sheepshead Bay

100 candles & counting

Raise those glasses for Joseph Dary. The new centenarian hit the milestone B-day on June 8 and celebrated with family and staff at the Crown Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, where he has resided for the past 10 years.

Niece Myrlande Dary and daughter Eves-Rose Dary helped him blow out the candles on his cake. Eves-Rose said that her sister Nicole Hoo-Chong, husband Leslie, and nephew Nicholas, had traveled up several days before to Brooklyn for a family gathering held at cousin Myrlande’s home as well.

Born in Haiti in 1915, Mr. Dary was a customs agent and emigrated to the United States in 1955.

According to daughter Eves-Rose, longevity runs in the family, “It’s genetics, his dad lived to 103,” she said. Adding, “my dad walked a lot and was not one to worry about anything in life,” she explained.

He also loved Haitian cuisine and had a drink or two on the weekends.

Susannah Providence, his recreational aid at the center for the past four years, told Standing O: “He loves his exercise, bowling, basketball, and going for walks. He also loves his word puzzles and trivia games.”

She added, “Mr. Dary is a gentlemen, he opens the door for you and always helps. He is a very nice man, you don’t come across too many like him anymore.”

Standing O wishes Mr. Dary many more candles.

Crown Nursing and Rehabilitation Center [3457 Nostrand Ave. at Avenue U in Sheepshead Bay, (718) 535–5100].
