Many in the Lehigh Valley are mourning the death and celebrating the life of beloved public servant Joseph Zeller.

The former Emmaus mayor and state representative died Wednesday at the age of 100.

Zeller devoted his life to serving others. He was in the Navy for World War II and then Korea.

After his military service, he became involved in local politics.

He rose through the ranks from Emmaus councilman to mayor and also served five terms in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives' 134th district.

69 News caught up with Zeller for his 100th birthday party in September when he revealed his keys for living a long, happy, successful life.

"I'm never a negative person, I don't believe in it, and that's why you live longer. I tell everybody to stay positive, it you stay positive and shake hands every day, you're going to live longer," Zeller said.

Zeller will be laid to rest at Fort Indiantown Gap National Cemetery
