Spokane Chronicle – Nov. 20, 1986
I came across an article about a quiet man in Baldwinsville New York who left an estate of $750,000 to local charities for the benefit of his community. This man has become my new hero; not for the wealth he accumulated or what he left for charity (which are wonderful things), but for how he lived his life.
The article goes into a lot of detail about this gentleman’s life story but I believe it can best be summed up by this quote from a neighbor and friend:
“He kept his place very, very neat.” said John Kerniski, Ryder’s friend and neighbor since the early 1970s. “His house and storage barn were methodically organized. And he was always well-dressed and well-mannered. I think he took pride in being well-presented.”
And there it is; a man who took pride in his home and property treated people with respect and strove to be well-presented in everything he did. If we all tried to live in this way I am sure that the world would be a much kinder and saner place!
It’s the last day to download my Kindle ebook for free. I would like to thank all of you who have already downloaded your copy and hope you enjoy the read! The Surprise Millionaires has been a labor of love for me and a chance to profile some of the unsung heroes of giving and philanthropy in our world. Thanks again. 🙂
This Surprise Millionaire invested completely in the auto industry, but it is not what you think!
