Stallings celebrates 102nd birthday

Family and friends of Herb Stallings made sure he had plenty of Carolina blue to celebrate his birthday last week.

Stallings, of Rocky Mount, is a proud alumni of UNC and wears his powder blue jacket whenever he gets the chance.

Stallings is possibly one of the oldest alumnus at the university. On Friday, August 4, he celebrated his 102nd birthday.

Family and friends came by Autumn Care of Nashville, where Stallings is currently staying, to help celebrate his big day. A small party was held on Friday and a larger party was held on Saturday.

Stallings was born in Wilson and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1937. He then spent five years in the United States Army. Stallings moved to Rocky Mount in 1950, where he started a business, Southern Office Supply. He worked there until his retirement.

Golf is one of Stallings' loves, a hobby he enjoyed until he was in his late 90s. Stallings was part of a group at Birchwood Country Club called the Seniors of Birchwood, or SOB's.

Stallings didn't have much to say about his birthday but was all smiles during his party on Friday.

"The older you get the more problems you got," Stallings said.
