Not our uncle, Ed Gluklick: at 86, he was an extra in Gran Torino a 2008 American drama film directed by, produced by and starring Clint Eastwood. Hearing that it would be filmed in Detroit, he got his professional head shots and went to the audition. As we were unaware of his adventure, when we watched the film, we were surprised to see him in the jury box sporting a bow tie!
Always disciplined, Uncle Eddie swims regularly. At 89, he entered the 27th ANNUAL DETROIT SENIOR OLYMPICS held in mid June. He won gold medals for the 50 meter Free Style and the 1500 Meter Race Walk.
Now that he has reached his 90th birthday, the question is, “What’s next?’ Uncle Eddie is a role model for us all.
