83 year old who walked miles to mow lawns gets new set of wheels
An 83 year old Florida man who has walked miles each day to mow lawns after his truck broke down, now is the owner of a new set of wheels.
John Joyce fought back tears as he was handed the keys to a 2004 Nissan truck at a used car dealership in Florida.
“It was wonderful, really wonderful,” he said.
Longtime customer Robert Norton and his wife Nikki set up a GoFundMe account to help Joyce, and in 2 weeks $13,000 was raised.
Joyce has been cutting lawns for more than 20 years and when the transmission went on his truck 3 months ago, he still didn’t give up. He pushed the lawnmower and carried the leaf blower 5 to 6 miles to do his work. Being on a fixed income, Joyce said he didn’t want to disappoint his customers plus he “needed the money” he admits.
