A Pennsylvania man had a big week as he celebrated a few important milestones.

Bill Mohr turned 105 on Sunday and celebrated his 70th wedding anniversary. And that's not all. He also just earned his high school diploma.

Back in 1926, the 15-year-old and his family had to move so his father could keep his job. Mohr had to leave St. Joseph's Preparatory School and get a job himself.

After Mohr told his daughter he would have liked to finish his high school years at his prep school, she helped make that dream a reality with the help of school officials.

"If I die tomorrow, I'm not going to ask the Lord for anything. He has given me everything I need over the years," said Mohr.

As can be expected, Mohr was more than happy to receive his diploma.
