A man named Gene Elliot, wanted to have the best 95th birthday ever so of course he held it where any 95 year old man would...the skating rink!

Gene has been skating since he was 5 years old, and has been going to Skateland USA in Hickory, North Carolina, for decades.

15 years ago when Gene's wife passed away he had skating to fall back on, which really helped him through the sadness. He now has five generations of his family roller skating along with him and he couldn't be happier.

"My daughter, she roller skates. My son roller skates. We're just a roller skating family," Gene said.

Gene said he hopes he can celebrate his 100th birthday skating too.
