(KCRA 3 Sacramento)   Man loses wife to a heart attack and wins the lottery the next day. For some this could be a win/win but in this case it's just bittersweet. "I think she just kind of sent me this money so I could continue taking care of the (grand) kids"   (kcra.com) divider line 44

I imagine it would have been quite suspicious had she died the day *after* he won the lottery.


I have a big family, and now if anybody needs anything, I can help them out.

I have a feeling your family is suddenly about to get a lot bigger.

Ironic.

He's gonna run through that money within a year.

It also rained on their wedding day.

make me some tea: He's gonna run through that money within a year.


If that long. 375k after taxes is going to be like 225k. He could easily spend all of that on a house and truck and find himself wishing he hadn't offered to help out his large family.

Yah. Came here to comment on the poor guy's naive understanding of both family and money.

I'll wait for the followup: Area man purchases Mossberg 500 with last bit of lottery winnings, hopes to remain safe from 2nd and 3rd cousins

I've heard rumors that lotteries are rigged but, this is the first time I've heard they were rigged by ghosts.

I wonder why the grandmothers of starving children don't make arrangements for lottery wins right after they die.

I guess it slips their minds. Man, Romney was right about the 47%.

I hate it when people say crap like this.. If that were possible, don't you think every dead person would have done it?

Everyone else's dead spouse just didn't care enough about them to rig the lottery in their favor.

How about just not let it bother you and let this guy try and find some solace after the death of his wife.

There are a lot more deaths every day than lottery drawings...so, no.

It kinda got me to thinking - the $650K face value is footnoted on the giant check as $500 a week for 25 years ($26,000 a year).  This guy is a 55-year-old truck driver, and maybe he doesn't expect to make it to 80.  Maybe he doesn't expect to make it to 70 (by which age he'd have gotten more than 375k).  Maybe he doesn't expect to even make it to 65.

The extra $26,000 a year would sure come in handy if you didn't mind continuing to work.  With that kind of money, I could probably cut back to just two jobs.  But for somebody older, or somebody with debts, the lump sum probably makes sense.

Came in to say something like this. When my mom died when I was 12, she didn't arrange for any lottery winnings for me. What a b*tch, right?

$375,000 will barely buy a house in California.

Heck, there are a few people I'd be willing to kill if they could lock in lottery winnings for me after their death!
 
2014-03-31 08:23:32 AM
Only $350k?

That won't last long. Probably just enough for him to retire as long as he's careful with it.
 
2014-03-31 08:25:41 AM
Uhh I mean $375k.. Reading fail.

my wife's "aunt" (mom's friend while she was young, not biological), "won the lotto" when her husband died.  He was a midlevel dealer in their area and had amassed quite a large chunk of land, paid off house, numerous cars/trucks/bikes and all sorts of other crap.  had a ton of cash around too.

She had grown tired of the lifestyle and had decided to leave him and start fresh, and luck would have it they were on the way home from a motorcycle show towing a large trailer full of bikes when they crashed.   the crash killed him and she only ended up with minor hand injuries.

So, on top of everything they had amassed, she now had a million dollar life insurance policy that paid out and numerous other smaller policies from his legit job and whatnot.  She literally went from a lady leaving her hubby to start a new life at 45 to a millionaire widow.

and wouldnt ya know it, she's engaged to a guy much younger than her now, and the whole family seems to see his true motive except her...

He did find solace. $650,000 of solace. God also did help those athletes.

i'm no expert, but i doubt god gives a crap about football.
clearly he's a basketball guy

and i wouldn't trade my wife for $650k (on most days)

Man, 650K turns into 225K pretty quick in Cali.  That's a lot of welfare shrimp.

That's the thing for me. I rarely play any lotto games, but when I do my "what if's" are always about what my wife and I could do with the money.
If I won without her I think I would just be lost.
 
2014-03-31 09:53:13 AM
No doubt Cantsleep,  If I ever won more than a grand or so I would have to sign it over to Mrs.Renegade.  She is financially more savvy than I.  My financial aspirations would include hookers, blow and bail money.  She would probably just want some new real Wool yarn or something and save the rest.

Is the check valid if there is a misspelling on it?

$650 Thousand DolloRS!

Isn't religion grand? The day after you die you can just start beating the odds in favor of the people you cared about. I wonder why this doesn't happen more often. I bet it's because most people aren't praying enough, or sending enough money to the televangelists on TV every Sunday. Keep up the prayers and tithing people eventually you'll get yours, or not.

Well, you started off with nothing
And you're proud that you're a self-made man
And your friends they all come crawling
Slap you on the back and say:
"Please!"
"Please!"

If he can buy a house outright that's one less bill to pay and he might be able to save some money from his paycheck.
