Florida Lawn Mower Man gifted new Truck

Grass Clippings - One Man and His Mower and TruckAn 83-year-old Florida man who pushed his lawnmower more than two miles to work after his truck broke down has been gifted a new car.

John Joyce from St. Petersburg has been mowing lawns as a hobby after retiring 25 years ago.

But when his 1995 Ford F-150 broke down beyond repair - he started pushing it 2.5 miles as he walked from his house just so he could get to work at a couple's home near Gulfport, WTSP reported.

When Robert and Nikki Norton, the couple whose lawn he has mowed for eight years, realized this, they started a GoFundMe page and raised enough money to get Joyce a new truck complete with insurance, a new lawn mower and gas money.
'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,' Robert told Joyce. 

'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.' She suggested we try a Go Fund Me. So, this was her idea.'
