Lighting repair specialist Herman "Hy" Goldman, 101, stands in his workshop at Capitol Lighting where he has worked for 73 years.

Herman 'Hy' Goldman turned 101 this weekend and won't quit after 73 years working at the same New Jersey job.

Goldman still shows up four days a week at light fixtures company Capitol Lighting in New Jersey. His co-workers celebrated his birthday with him on Monday.

Aside from a brief absence to serve in the US Army in World War II, Goldman has worked at Capitol Lighting since 1941. The store says he was first hired to sell items and stock and clean the displays.

Co-worker Sandy Ronco says Goldman now specialises in rebuilding items that were damaged or unusable.

Goldman lives in nearby Whippany and still drives himself to work.
