WWII vet gets surprise 90th birthday party in Duncan

DUNCAN, SC (WSPA) – A World War II veteran celebrated his 90th birthday this weekend.

His family planned the whole thing as a surprise for Lloyd David.

Davis thought they were just going out to eat. Instead, friends and family gathered for a birthday lunch complete with a The Price is Right themed birthday cake.

“I told them, if I had known it was going to happen, I might have stayed home,” David said, “I’d have surprised them.”

Lloyd turns 90-years-old on Monday. He served in the army in World War II.
