Just weeks after celebrating his 109th birthday Jan. 2 at Lake Morton Plaza, Ike Newcomer died on Friday. He was believed to be among the 10 oldest men in the U.S. Newcomer, a native of Hershey, Pa., moved to Florida in 1952 and became a homebuilder, according to a recent Ledger feature. In younger days, he spent summers touring with an Airstream travel trailer, visiting all 49 states he could drive to and every Canadian province.| LPD Facebook post
