I would like to thank all of my followers and other interested parties that have made this blog such a pleasure to manage.
When I began this blog in 2013 it was in conjunction with the release of my related e-book on amazon.com. However, the blog soon eclipsed the book in popularity and interest and I have been very pleased to be the main researcher and writer ever since.
However, all things must come to an end and it looks like our Surprise Millionaire journey has ended. But rest assured that I will continue my personal Surprise Millionaire journey and I hope all of you will as well!
For those of you who might need a Surprise Millionaire “fix” going forward, check out the e-book at amazon.com. And never forget the Surprise Millionaire’s motto, “anyone can accumulate wealth”!
The Surprise Millionaires
A long-time company receptionist left a staggering $3 million estate to her local community!
It appears a Wyoming man made his own will in order to leave nothing to chance. Tom Woodyard of Riverton Wyoming knew that he was getting older and wanted to make sure that his wishes were known and carried out when his time came. So, did Mr. Woodyard hire an attorney to hammer out the details? Nope. This retired educator did it all himself! He drafted a very detailed will in which he left his secret fortune to more charities than could be cataloged in a short blog post! Everyone from the Boy Scouts to hospices, fishing organizations to churches, can thank Tom Woodyard for his generous gifts. And thankfully, the courts determined this gentleman’s do it yourself will 100% legal and binding. While I admire Mr. Woodyard’s do it yourself attitude, when we are dealing with such a large estate, it might be a good idea to get a little legal advice along the way. Regardless, it looks like we have another inspiring Surprise Millionaire to add to our list!
Retired art teacher and animal lover David Robert Wetzell left a surprise fortune to benefit the homeless animals of Champaign County Illinois. Always an animal lover, Mr. Wetzell told a few trusted confidants of his plan to fund a no-kill shelter in his community. I’m not certain, but I believe his friends and loved ones were probably shocked to learn of the wealth he had accumulated to accomplish the task!
