94-Year-Old Man Builds His Backyard Pool For Neighborhood Kids So He Wouldn’t Be Lonely



When Evy Davison passed away from cancer in April 2016, Keith, her husband of 66 years, couldn’t bear the silence of being alone. “You just can’t imagine what it’s like,” Davison says in the video below. “You cry a lot. That’s just the way it is because she’s not here.” So the 94-year-old retired judge decided to install a backyard pool in Morris, Minnesota. And now he has so many visitors that his house will never be quiet again!

The pool measures 16ft (4.9m) by 32ft (9.8m). It was installed earlier this year before the kindly nonagenarian unveiled it to the neighborhood kids in July.

Despite having three adult children, Davison has no grandchildren. But as one neighbor rightly told him, “you kind of adopted our whole neighborhood of kids. These are your grandchildren.”

Davison no longer feels alone, although he does enjoy a quiet swim…on the rare occasion that the pool is free, that is.
