FLINT (WJRT) - (05/08/14) - A Flint businessman is celebrating a century of life.

Thursday night, the Flint Golf Club hosted a birthday party for Emil Salay, born 100 years ago on May 8, 1914.

He, alongside his five brothers, helped run The Flint Sausage Works, Salay's Incorporated, started by his Hungarian father back in 1916.

Emil retired as president and CEO of the company in 2000.

He is also a World War II, veteran, but these days he's just enjoying the little things in life, like bird watching, sports and backyard cookouts.
