Martin Toeper, who turned 100 on July 8, 2020, was born in Grosschogen, Romania, on July 8, 1920. Toeper served in the Hungarian Army during World War II, while family was forced to flee into Austria. Through much difficulty, the family was able to be reunited after the war.
Toeper met and married Minnie, and together they had a daughter, Ingrid. In 1956 the three of them sailed to America and settled in New Hampshire. In 1992 Martin and Minnie moved to Florida, and in 2005 bought a home in Zellwood Station. Unfortunately, two years later Minnie passed away. Ingrid and her husband, Gustav, left New Hampshire, headed to Florida, and moved in with Martin. The three of them are members of Apopka Church.
There are very few 100-year-olds who don’t take any medicines or need hearing aids or glasses, and who walk daily in the neighborhood, but Martin Toeper is one of them! Happy 100 years, Martin!
