Man Won Lottery on Ticket He Bought the Day He Died

0

Donald Peters has got to be both the luckiest and unluckiest man on the day of his death. Well, unlucky because he suffered a heart attack and died, but lucky because he just bought the winning lottery ticket that provided for his family:

The Peters children think their father would have appreciated the irony.

Peters bought two Connecticut Lottery tickets at a local 7-Eleven store on Nov. 1 as part of a 20-year tradition he shared with his wife Charlotte. Later that day, the 79-year-old retired hat factory worker suffered a fatal heart attack while working in his yard in Danbury. [...]

"He'd be very mad, he just passed away and she won a lot of money," said Brian Peters, one of the couple's three children. "He'd say, 'Figures!"'

Yeah that'd be about my luck too! I'd purchase the ticket then die and someone else would benefit from it and I'd not get a damn thing out of it!

Wow..... just... wow...
Poor guy, rich family though, but I wouldn't want to be in their situation. Great for them to have the money, but to lose a loved one... bleh.
