Hard Working Elderly Man Rewarded For Dedication, Shocked Beyond Belief

After his truck broke down, an 83-year-old Florida man would push his lawnmower more than two miles every day, just to get to work. His 1995 Ford F-150 broke down beyond repair.

He mowed Robert and Nikki Norton's lawn for over eight years. Once they found out, they started a GoFundMe page and raised enough money to get Joyce a new truck complete with insurance.

Robert told Joyce "I just couldn't bear to see you showing up at my house and pushing that lawnmower and not having a vehicle and I didn't think you were going to have the means to get one. I didn't know how we were going to get you one. I said to Nikki, 'Maybe we can give some of our wedding money. So, this was her idea."

With the GoFundMe page, the Nortons raised $13,080 in one month and bought Joyce a 2004 Nissan SE King Cab V8 truck. Joyce said, "I feel like a millionaire."

Robert Norton added, "He is a dedicated, loyal worker and his job is his livelihood. It's his hobby. It's his livelihood. It's what he enjoys doing."
