The New Jersey-born Albuquerque transplant is a devoted New York Yankees fan. He has seen both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig play.

Corio spends five days a week as a wood carver. His family says Corio is a thrill seeker. Most recently he's been on a glider and a hot air balloon.

What's his secret to his longevity?

"Never smoking and just keep breathing," he said with a laugh.

Corio said eating lots of greens has helped him in the long run.
