A North Texas attorney honored for being America's oldest worker has died at age 102.

Up until his death, Jack Borden had worked daily at his Weatherford law practice, handling real estate and probate cases.

Borden died Wednesday. His law partner and nephew, John Westhoff, says he insisted that Borden go to a hospital for treatment of fluid on his lungs after Borden arrived at work Monday.

He was named America's Outstanding Oldest Worker for 2009 by Experience Works, the nation's largest nonprofit training center for older workers.

Borden told The Associated Press in 2009 that he had no plans to retire.

He was known recalling with vivid details his childhood during the Great Depression and chasing draft dodgers when he was an FBI agent in the 1940s.
