TULSA, Oklahoma -

A longtime Tulsa tailor who survived both the Holocaust and COVID-19 turns 100 years old Wednesday.

He’s been surrounded by family and friends all day at the Zarrow Pointe Retirement Center.

Ray’s Tailor Shop was a staple in Tulsa and the owner, Sherman Ray, has quite a few friends and family to celebrate him.

Ray was born in Poland in 1921 and was assigned a May 5 birthday when he came to the U.S. He survived concentration camps when he was just a teenager.

He also survived COVID-19 in December.
