As for Betty White, she may actually live to be older than Sophia Petrillo(if my calculations are right, she lived to 103!).
And with Stan Lee, I would say acting like a kid(and creating characters that never get old) is what keeps him young.

If I could add one more, I know Alan Young of Mr. Ed and DuckTales fame is still going at 96!
And let's not forget Habitat For Humanity founder Jimmy Carter and former President George Bush, both of whom are 91.

The 99-year-old was unable to travel from her home in France to collect her Oldie of the Year award in person at Tuesday's ceremony in London.

Where I work we have a former professional baseball player of considerable fame who works for us, probably the only famous person I know. But what impresses him is that my Mum once met Honus Wagner !

Well there is this one gangster that I knew pretty well. His name came up regarding the Hoffa disappearance but nothing ever came of it.  I actually owe my job to him because he's the guy who recommended me to the owner of my company. But that's about it, I keep a low profile.  ;D

Now there's a name, Jimmy Hoffa, yes he did disappear, no one knows where to, could he still be alive? But it was in the 1979s he vanished.

Yeah Jimmy took a long walk in July 1975. Doubtful that he would still be alive as he'd be 103 years old though. He disappeared from the Machus Red Fox restaurant.

Funny, my buddy's favorite restaurant was a place called Andiamo's which is located where Machus used to be.

Additionally, a famous brain teaser called the Monty Hall Problem was named for him, due to his work on the aforementioned game show.

Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then says to you, "Do you want to pick door No. 2?" Is it to your advantage to switch your choice?

A lifelong native and resident of New Orleans, he was affected by Hurricane Katrina in August of 2005; he remained in his house during the storm, to be home with his ailing wife, but the house was in a portion of the city that was heavily flooded, leading other residents and members of his own family to assume that he'd died in the hurricane (and no one had heard from him in subsequent days either)... but within a week, CNN reported that Mr. Domino and his family had been rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter.
In fact, one year to the day after the hurricane, then-President George W. Bush presented him with a new National Medal Of Arts, replacing the one that Bill Clinton had given him, which was lost in the floodwaters of the hurricane.

Fats Domino, male singer of rock & roll/R&B music, is 89 years old today.

A lifelong native and resident of New Orleans, he was affected by Hurricane Katrina in August of 2005; he remained in his house during the storm, to be home with his ailing wife, but the house was in a portion of the city that was heavily flooded, leading other residents and members of his own family to assume that he'd died in the hurricane (and no one had heard from him in subsequent days either)... but within a week, CNN reported that Mr. Domino and his family had been rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter.
In fact, one year to the day after the hurricane, then-President George W. Bush presented him with a new National Medal Of Arts, replacing the one that Bill Clinton had given him, which was lost in the floodwaters of the hurricane.

Sadly, he passed away last month. :\'(

Allan H. "Bud" Selig, former MLB commissioner, is 84 years old today. He served as acting commissioner from September 1992 until July 1998, when he was promoted to official commissioner. He held that position for 16 1/2 years before stepping down in January 2015, when he was replaced by Rob Manfred, who holds the position today.

Prior to his tenure as commissioner, he was an owner of the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team.

During his tenure as acting OR full-time commissioner, he oversaw various events/changes that occurred in MLB. These included realignment of the divisions to three per league in 1994, which made the wild card necessary; the strike in that same year; the introduction of interleague play in 1997; postponement of games after the Nine-Eleven attacks out of concern for the safety and security of fans and players (2001); organization of the first-ever World Baseball Classic (2006); taking actions against players who've used steroids/performance-enhancing drugs; and transferring the Houston Astros to the American League West division (2013) so that all six divisions would be equal at five teams apiece.

Last year Mr. Selig was inducted into the National Baseball Hall Of Fame (on his 83rd birthday, amazingly enough).
