BURLINGTON, N.C. (WXII/NBC NEWS) - Bob Sargent of Burlington, North Carolina is starting a new career at the sprightly age of 94.
The World War II Navy veteran is sporting a new uniform to serve his community: A barista apron.
Sargent’s granddaughter and her husband opened Salvation Coffee Company less than a year ago in Burlington off South Church Street. They decided they needed a new barista.
When asked if he’s ever going to retire, Sargent replies, “I’ve tried that 3 times, didn’t work”.
