Leon Ward gained an interest in bowling while hanging around his local alley as a child in Brooklyn, NY. At 83 years old he continues to bowl on a weekly basis and participates in two different senior citizen bowling leagues along with his wife Mildred. He lives just outside of Philadelphia in Bristol, Pennsylvania. He spent many years of his life as a member of the United States Army and fought in both the Korean and Vietnam war.

We love this short Documentary about Leon. It was a part of our film screening room, at last years 'Age Doesn't Matter' Festival, but in case you missed it - Enjoy below !
