Ex-marine becomes oldest Louisianan to skydive

Tuesday, September 7, 2010 - 11:00am

Ex-marine Ray Urban celebrated his birthday performing a tandem sky dive at the Gilliam, Louisiana Airport Sunday afternoon.

Surrounded by his family and friends, Urban blew out the candles on his cake, put on his jump suit and took to the sky.

Sunday's jump made him the oldest person in Louisiana to ever sky dive. His son Charles, a jump master himself, flew along side his dad.

Mr. Urban says he is considering another jump on his 95th birthday.

Ray, you continue to be amazing to me - getting younger each year! You don't look any different than when I met you 30 years ago!
