Rus Gremell lived a simple life. He was never married or had children and lived all his life in the same brick house in Chicago. He retired at the age of 45 after serving in World War II and attending law school. For over 60 years, he was also a Boy Scout scoutmaster and touched the hearts of everyone who knew him. Many considered him a family in his society.
Russ never spent money, but he once bought Walgreens for $ 1,000 about 70 years ago on the advice of his brother. Over the next decades, it became $ 2 million. Later, Russ decided to donate all proceeds to the Illinois Audubon Society to build a reserve!
The result was the 400-acre Gremel Wildlife Sanctuary, and, fortunately, Russ was able to see that all this materialized before he passed away. Check out the video below to learn more about this man’s incredibly exciting life!
