Local Princeton Resident Turns 101

Acorn Glen Assisted Living resident Mr. Shih Tsun Lin turned 101 on Saturday, July 7, 2018. Mr. Lin along with his family and friends celebrated his birthday on Friday at his residence at Acorn Glen in Princeton. As part of the celebration, Mr. Lin’s talented family performed for the community. Shih Tsun was born in China, the third among a total of 8 children. He studied to become a chemical engineer and first came to the United States on a year-long scholarship to pursue his Master’s Degree and eventually moved to the U.S. permanently in 1971. Throughout his life he worked as a professor and enjoyed leisure activities such as bridge, reading, and tennis (which he played into his 80s). He has three children, four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Mr. Lin says the secret to his long and happy life are two things: family and faith. Congratulations to Mr. Lin on this wonderful milestone!
