This month’s Senior Spotlight is on Valparaiso Rittenhouse resident Lester Grassmyer. Grassmyer was born in Indiana in 1921, and grew up on a farm with three brothers and three sisters.

He stayed in school until the sixth grade when he left school to work on the farm. He later worked on the railroad, and then eventually ended up working as a lineman for NIPSCO, which he said was his favorite job.

Grassmyer’s favorite actor is John Wayne and he loves anything with John Wayne in it. He likes the summertime the best, and he loves to sit out on his porch and enjoy the sunshine. Years ago on Saturday evenings, he would go to Premiere Movie Theater for movie nights. He likes Blue’s music and B.B. King is his favorite musician.

He likes basketball, both playing and watching the games, and he enjoys working outside on the house and on the lawn. Grassmyer and his wife, Juanita, have one son.

Rittenhouse Senior Living of Valparaiso is located at 1300 Vale Park Road. For more information, call 219-531-2484.
