Keith Davison, 94, was married to his wife Evy Davison for 66 years before she died of cancer last year. The silence in his household was unbearable for him and he would cry a lot because of his loneliness. Keith, who is a retired judge and resides in Morris, Minnesota, got an idea on how to treat his loneliness. He had a swimming pool built in his backyard and lets kids around his neighborhood use it for free.
As a result, people go to his house every day and the noise never stops. That’s just what he wanted to happen.
Now the 94-year-old’s house is never quiet!
The swimming pool is 16 feet by 32 feet and it just got built in early 2017.
In July of this year, he showed the swimming pool to the kids of his neighborhood and told them they could use it anytime. Keith does have 3 adult children but they haven’t given him any grandchildren. So, he kind of adopted the kids in the neighborhood in a way. They have become his grandchildren. Keith himself takes a swim once in a while, but only during the rare times when no one else is in the pool.
