    (1939-January 15, 2006)
    Won $16.2 million in the Pennsylvania Lottery in 1988
    Ordered by a judge to pay one-third of his winnings to his landlady and sometime girlfriend (1992)
    Squandered his fortune on bad investments and luxury items never used
    Died of respiratory failure at age 66
    He was married seven times and had 10 children, one illegitimate.
    He bought the winning ticket while on disability, $2.46 in his bank account and $40 he got after pawning a ring.
    He served jail time for passing bad checks, firing a rifle shot into the car of his 6th wife and firing a shotgun blast at a debt collector who went to his dilapidated mansion looking for payment.
    He was clueless with money, auctioning off his 17 remaining lottery installment payments in 1996 for $2.65 million, paying off past debts, legal fees, and what he owed his landlady, investing poorly yet again, declaring bankruptcy and dying in debt, living on a $450-per-month disability check.
    His mother died when he was 8-years-old and his father sent him off to live in an orphanage.
    He vigorously denied ever agreeing to split his proceeds with his landlady/girlfriend, but a judge ruled against him and he couldn't afford the settlement, starting a financial spiral downward.
    His brother tried to hire a hitman to kill him and his 6th wife.
    He was quoted by a newspaper, stating, 'I was much happier when I was broke,' reinforcing the old adage - 'Money can't buy happiness.'
