Mechanic Pays Struggling Single Dad’s $1500 Minivan Repair Bill

YouTube Link

When single father Cory Grimes took his minivan in for repairs shortly before Christmas after trying in vain to fix the vehicle himself, it was with the knowledge that his last dollar would be spent on the bill.

Grimes, a Colorado part-time dishwasher struggling to care for his autistic son, was accustomed to barely making ends meet each month. 

Yet Grimes was stunned when he learned that the mechanic in Strasburg, Colorado who fixed his minivan had learned of his circumstances and waived his $1,500 repair fee.

As can be seen in this video footage, a tearful Grimes, who left the shop with the repair money in hand, expressed his joy in being able to use some of the money to treat his son to a nice Christmas.
