A 91-year-old man from East Palestine, Ohio has won the hearts of facebookers with his newfound hobby. Nicknamed The Puzzle Man, David Butler spends most of his time solving puzzles and selling them for noble causes. Up till now, the pensioner has completed around 200 puzzles.
The Puzzle Man Helped A School Buy First Aid Kits
Cindy Fletcher, Butler’s daughter, wrote in a recent Facebook post that his father’s love for puzzles had become more than just a time killer. The man uses his newfound passion for solving ridiculously challenging puzzles to help members of his community. And the internet seems to love that.
According to Butler, who has spent the better part of his life in East Palestine, Ohio, he discovered that he had a thing for puzzles ever since Cindy gifted him a 500-piece set. This happened last October.
Ever since his ‘indoctrination,’ Butler, who was recently nicknamed The Puzzle Man by his Facebook followers, hasn’t stopped solving puzzles. Last time he checked, Butler solved over 200 puzzles.
During a recent interview, the pensioner declared that it doesn’t matter how easy or challenging the puzzle is, because he still finds a way to solve it.
His daughter said that it takes the Puzzle Man no more than two days to complete a session. However, every now and then, he takes up his sweet time solving one.
And apparently, it’s not just a hobby. When news of The Puzzle Man’s exploits broke up, he received requests from all over the country to tape himself while completing puzzles. He even started receiving them by mail.
Ashley Mckim, the Parent Teacher Organization VP, declared that thanks to Mr. Butler’s dedication, the local school now has first-aid kits.
Most of the time, Mr. Butler either donates or sells his completed puzzles. Some of the money he earns from his newfound hobby, he donated to various causes.
