June 27 (Bloomberg) -- Jerry Conkle, a resident of The Villages, Florida, talks with Bloomberg's Toluse Olorunnipa about life in the world’s largest retirement community.

Conkle, 77, moved to The Villages 20 years ago after working four decades as a General Motors Co. machine repairman in Muncie, Indiana. (Source: Bloomberg)
