Drive-by parade held for WWII veteran on 100th birthday

A World War II veteran from Media celebrated his 100th birthday in style Monday.

Police, fire and EMS vehicles drove past the Sterling Nursing Home as Otis Evans waved from the window with a "World's Best Grandpa" sign.

"One hundred years, he's seen a whole lot, done a whole lot, been to a whole lot of places. What a blessing to have a chance to celebrate 100 years," his son Mike Evans said.

Evan's son added that he felt so happy to see people take time out of their day to honor his father.

Evans was in the Navy for 20 years.
