City man celebrating 102nd birthday today
by Melanie Callahan, Star Staff Writer
Corner Brook

Wilfred Osmond, a long-time resident of Corner Brook, has celebrated more than 100 birthday cakes, Christmas trees and Easter Egg hunts. Today, Osmond is celebrating his 102nd birthday. Osmond, currently living in Mountainview Estates, and his wife had three sons, three daughter, "too many grandchildren to count," and about 20 great-grandchildren.
Osmond began work as a fisher in the waters of Labrador throughout the summer and as a logger in the winter at the young age of 12. Life was pretty rough back then, he said. "I used to spend about two months out of 12 home. My wife was there with the family. I could not stay home and see my family in want. I had to go and scrape up something."
In 1940, employment at the paper mill brought Osmond to Corner Brook, where he has lived ever since. Throughout his 102 years, Osmond has seen many things - some good, some bad - that have shaped the province we know today. The most significant event in our history, according to Osmond, was when Newfoundland joined confederation in 1949. "The biggest thing was Confederation - that was the biggest change in Newfoundland." Osmond said. "Everything was different after that. When I was a boy growing up, nothing was like it is today. I think Confederation was a good thing. I don't know what would have happened if we did not join Canada." "We probably would have gone to England, or the States. I think that was the best choice, as far as I am concerned."
Unable to pinpoint the secret to longevity, Osmond believes lady luck may have been on his side. "I do not know for what reason I lived for so long, to tell you the truth. I was never a drinker. I was never a bad man, I always got along very well with people, and I knocked around with a lot of people, I assure you. I was just lucky. I never had any sickness in my life." A positive attitude may be the answer. "I have no problem with anything," he said. "I do not make problems."
