GREAT FALLS - Ten months after his death, the ashes of Walter Breuning have been placed in a niche at a mausoleum in Great Falls.

The Great Falls Tribune reports attorney Bob Kampfer, who represents Breuning's estate, recently completed arrangements to place Breuning's ashes at the Hillcrest Lawn Memorial Association's mausoleum.

The urn is adorned with a photo of Breuning, who died on April 14 at the age of 114, after a nearly two-year stint as the world's oldest man. No funeral service was held, at Breuning's request.

The urn reads: "Walter Breuning 1896-2011. A wondrous fellow, A distinctive honor, To have the Title of 'Oldest Man Alive.'"
