Super Seniors: Vic Serafy
September 21, 2018
Editor's note: The Steamboat Pilot & Today asked readers to tell us about their favorite seniors over the age of 75 and then we asked these Super Seniors to share their secrets to living a long and healthy life.
Super powers: Vic Serafy has lived in Steamboat Springs for more than 20 years and is a very active community volunteer. He has been a hospitality volunteer at Yampa Valley Medical Center for more than a decade, and prior to that, Vic and his late wife, Jan, volunteered at the Wild West Air Fest and judged cars at the Mustang Roundup. Vic was spotted this year, during the community clean-up days, on the side of the highway picking up trash. He still rides his bike all over town and in the last couple of years has taken pistol-shooting lessons and shot at the range. This summer, he took swim lessons and has started playing pickleball once a week. Vic worked in the pharmaceutical industry for many years and still maintains his pharmacy license in Georgia by taking continuing education classes.
What are your secrets to living a long and healthy life?
"I exercise regularly. I bike, and I do a little bit of pickleball. As far as eating, I eat healthy and limit my sweets."
