For a 71-year-old guy, Gabe Ornelas is as fit as they come.
Tan, trim, and lithe, he’s been a daily runner for 54 years, ever since he started preparing for Marine Corps basic training as a Brooklyn teenager.
He’s also a regular on the links at Discovery Bay Golf Club near his home just outside Port Townsend. He eats right and gets plenty of sleep.
His healthy lifestyle is merely the continuation of habits nurtured long before his 1995 retirement—as a captain—from the Los Angeles Police Department.
