DANIA BEACH (CBSMiami) – When you see him at Jaxson’s, 90-year-old Stanley Goldstein won’t give you the cold shoulder…just a cold scoop of delicious ice cream.
It is ice cream Goldstein has been serving since 1975.
On Wednesday, the Dania Beach ice cream institution celebrated a birthday for one of its most valuable employees.
Most 90-year-olds are well into retirement, but not this birthday boy. Goldstein told CBS4’s Summer Knowles that he isn’t considering retirement anytime soon.
According to Monroe Udell, the owner of Jaxson’s, Goldstein is no slacker.
“He’s been a great employee. He shows up on time…he’ll work as long as you let him work,” said Udell.
Adds Udell: “He’s come in here with a broken leg, broken arm, one eye from eye surgery. Nothing stops him.”
Goldstein has enjoyed good times at the Zagat-rated ice cream parlor over the years and has seen many people.
“We’ve had football players, baseball players, movie stars, but I’m not impressed. I’m sorry. I’m not impressed. ‘Hi, Stan…I love you’ is more important to me than any movie star,” said Goldstein.
Goldstein says the key to his long life is his love for people and his love for ice cream. He said he eats at least two scoops of the cold stuff every day.
