Living 94 years, that too in the 21st century, is something
which has lately become very rare. The ones who achieve this
feat deserve a “hats off” for being healthy enough to have done
so. However, 94 years is a lot to live and people have a unique
bad characteristic of becoming lonely very soon. Imagine if a
94-year-old man who spent majority of his life with his wife,
loses her all of a sudden. Anybody would be lonely in such a
situation and for a 94-year-old man, it must be too much to
handle. Apart from imaginations though, such a thing just
happened in the real life. In April 2016, this 94-year-old man
lost his wife “Evy Davison” who lost in the battle against
cancer. He just couldn’t bear the silence which widespread in
the whole house. In other words, it was a difficult situation
for him to be in. Intelligently, he figured out that feeling
depressed about the inevitable wasn’t going to help him and he
surely needs to do something to eradicate silence from his
house. What he did then is something unthinkable. The retired
judge decided to make a backyard pool for the neighborhood kids
to play in. It just took a small amount of time for him to
execute the plan and it was ready.
The backyard pool which Keith Davison made for the neighborhood
kids to play in, measures 16ft by 32ft. He loves children and
claims that they remind him of his childhood and makes him feel
happy. The silence in the house which catalysed the loneliness
in him was eradicated completely by the neighborhood kids who
love to visit his backyard pool. He knew that this plan will
workout as there were many kids near his house but never
visited him. After he unveiled the brilliantly constructed
backyard pool, all the neighborhood kids couldn’t wait to have
their bodies submerged in the water.
94-year-old man “Keith Davison” has three adult children but no
grandchildren. He already missed seeing kids playing and even
more after the death of his wife, Evy Davison. The backyard
pool was a master plan which kind of made him adopt all of the
neighborhood kids. The backyard pool never used to remain free
due to its immense popularity. However, whenever it’s free and
empty, Keith Davison also enjoys a quiet swim.
After constructing the backyard pool, his house in Morris,
Minnesota was never silent again and he never felt lonely. This
idea turned out to be beneficial for both the 94-year-old man
and the neighborhood kids.
The death of Keith Davison’s wife made him feel lonely at
the age of 96. He couldn’t bear the silence which manifested
loneliness in his heart.
The retired judge hence decided to construct a swimming pool
in his back yard for the neighborhood kids.
The 94-year-old man is never lonely again, after creating
the backyard pool.
The pool measures 16ft by 32ft.
