Herman "Hy" Goldman reached his 101st birthday over the weekend, but had a birthday party while working his job at Capitol Lighting in East Hanover, N.J., on Monday.

Goldman, who has been at Capitol Lighting for 73 years, was given a birthday cake by his co-workers, notes the Associated Press.

Even though he's more than a century old, Goldman still comes to work four days a week.

Goldman has worked at the light-fixtures company since 1941, and was only absent when he enlisted in the U.S. military to fight in World War II.

Goldman first started at Capitol Lighting selling products and cleaning displays.

These days, Goldman repairs store products that are damaged or non-working, co-worker Sandy Ronco told the Associated Press.

According to CBS New York, Goldman drives a 1999 Ford Contour to work.
