Russ Gremel was four years when his family moved into a new home in Jefferson Park, Chicago in 1923. At that time, the street lights were lit at night, and people used horses to move around town. It was a quiet little town.

98-year old Russ now lives alone in the same house. Russ still enjoys his oatmeal. Despite Russ’ simple life, he has a 70-year old secret.

Back in the day, his brother advised him to invest in the pharmacy business. As we know women need their makeup and medicine as a necessity. With only $1,000, Russ bought a stock at a local pharmacy.
Years later, the Walgreens pharmacy has grown into a national chain. The stock purchased by Russ is worth $ 2 million in worth.

Nobody knew about Russ’ stock all those years. Russ decided what he wanted with the stock years later. The Illinois Audubon Society was the lucky beneficiary of Russ’ donation. The society had been eyeing a piece of property for some time. Thanks to Russ’ gift, the society was able to open a 400-acre wildlife refuge and named it after Russ.
