Residents in Eastern Panhandle celebrate local sub shop owner’s 90th birthday

West Virginia

One man is celebrating his 90th birthday by serving others he’s known for years.

Bob Widmeyer is the owner of Bob’s Carry Out located off of North Raleigh Street in Martinsburg, West Virginia. He’s been flipping burgers here for 53 years.

“I hate to tell you I’ve had a lot of friends over the years and I think most of them have passed on okay, so I’ve done something right,” Widmeyer said.

Several people stopped by his local shop to wish him a happy birthday.

“My husband introduced me to Bob’s, he has since passed but I still come here and I had no idea it was his birthday and I just want to shoutout happy birthday Mr.Bob,” Barbara Carpenter said.

“The guy comes in the door and said it’s Bob’s birthday today and I wished him a happy birthday,” Jake Rice said.

According to Widmeyer, the secret to living a long life is to stay active and remain happy.
