101-Year-Old Shovels Snow To Help His Neighbors
Shoveling snow is a nice thing for anyone to do for their neighbors... but at age 101-years-old? That's just amazing. It's a very physical chore that takes a lot of strength and energy. I know I get tired 5 minutes in! But Richard Mann has no problem doing it.
After his father died at age 4, Mann had to take over some of the 'man' responsibilities, like shoveling the snow. So he has been doing it every year since. He has never expected any recognition for what he does. He said he's just doing something nice for his neighbors, like he was taught at a young age.
“That’s why I think people appreciated seeing the video of him because there are so many things going on that are not, you know, people are not being kind to each other,” Margo Mann, Richard Mann’s daughter, said. “And kindness is the key to having a successful and good life.”
Mann is a father, grandfather and great-grandfather. When asked the key to a long life he answered with a smile, “Clean living, and wine, women and money [laughs],” Richard said. “I’ve had quite a life.” Mann says he still plays golf whenever he gets the chance, and swears by bacon and eggs for breakfast every day.
