Breuning still dresses in a suit and tie every day. In a recent interview, Breuning said, "Every day I exercise. Every morning I do all my exercises".On his 112th birthday, Breuning said the secret to long life is being active: "[If] you keep your mind busy and keep your body busy, you're going to be around a long time".
