Never heard of this guy. But a good story. If this is the wrong place, Jeff or other moderator please move it.

94 years old and an example for us all.  Too bad to lose someone like this but great that his story is remembered and told.

Thanks for posting.

As I was reading that story, I couldn't help thinking about jack's teenaged son helping his parents every weekend; carry in tools and materials for 6 miles. I gotta give that kid some credit.
