 When your vocation is your life's passion, it's sustenance much like water and bread that keeps you going well into old age.

100-year-old Oklahoma wheat farmer K.B. Williams can't imagine his life without the fields. "I was never scared of work," he told SUNUP TV in a recent interview. "I just enjoyed farming really well." After breaking his hip recently, returning to the combine harvester motivated Williams to stick with his rehabilitation program.

"It's been a pretty good life. I wouldn't change it for anything else," Williams reflects, perched beside his beloved John Deere. Watch the full clip below.

This October, Williams turns 101. We hope he's able to enjoy more precious time at the helm of the combine for more wheat harvests to come.
