Cake Walk

Celebrating WWII Veteran Russel Oblinger

Russel Oblinger is a 98-year-old World War II veteran who has quite the story to tell and quite the life to be celebrated.


Talk about a way to start the day with something inspirational. In the video below you're about to see a special Sparkt Cake Walk honoring a special man, Russel Oblinger. He's a 98-year-old World War II veteran who has quite the story to tell and quite the life to be celebrated.

Mr. Oblinger was nominated by his son Russ who says he loves his dad so much and wanted to thank him and all of our veterans for the work they've done, and continue to do for our country. Amen.

Watch this video below for more on Russel's service and what happened when his ship was struck by a torpedo in the Mediterranean:

Special thanks to owner Marc Serrao and the rest of our friends at Oakmont Bakery and big kudos to their cake designers. Just look what they did to honor this Bronze Star Medal recipient.
