According to his family, Vietnam War vet Steven Williams lived the frugal life of a bachelor. Fond of golf, travel and investing, Steve worked for the same company for over 30 years saving and investing all the while.
Like most servicemen involved in the Vietnam conflict, Steve did not receive the homecoming afforded to veterans of previous wars. However, all that has now changed.
Upon Steve’s passing in 2018, the Minnesota Veterans Home was thrilled to receive a nearly $3 million bequest from Steve’s $14 million estate!
Thanks to Steve’s generosity, countless Veterans will be afforded the care they so rightly deserve. The Gov. of Minnesota must have been impressed as well. So much so that he declared a specific “Steve Williams Day” in honor of the gift. Thankfully, this soldier and Surprise Millionaire finally received the recognition he so greatly deserved.
