L’Union Suite, a Haitian-American culture website, republished an article by USA Today about Duranord Veillard, who celebrated a major milestone a few weeks back. Veillard turned 108-years-old, according to USA Today, and also celebrated 82-years of marriage with his wife, Jeanne, who will turn 105 in May.
Veillard is a native of Haiti and studied law. The report also says he obtained a visa to live in the United States after losing his job as a judge. After settling in Spring Valley, NY., he retired as a lab technician. As possibly the oldest marriage couple in Rockland County, they have 12 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
