Humble Plumber Wins $136 Million Lottery, Still Wants To Continue Working

NEW YORK (AP) — A Staten Island plumber who won a $ 136 million Powerball jackpot said Thursday he wants to keep working — but also plans to “relax a little more.”

Anthony Perosi, 56, left his March 14 ticket pinned to the wall behind a basement pipe for six weeks.

The winner, Anthony Perosi, on right, and his son, Anthony Perosi III.

A friend had told him where the winning ticket had been purchased, but she thought a teacher had won. So he took his time checking the numbers, which he’d chosen randomly.

“When I saw all the numbers matched up, I panicked,” Perosi said. “I immediately called my son and asked him to come over right away!”

Anthony Perosi III did what he was told.

“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” said the 27-year-old. “I checked the numbers on my phone and it has been surreal ever since.”

The cash value of the ticket came to $ 88.5 million. The father decided to share his winnings with his son, split 70-30. So dad gets a net lump sum of $ 38.6 million after required withholdings, and son pockets $ 16.5 million.

“I honestly don’t know what my plans are right now,” said the elder Perosi. “I want to continue to work, but will be able to relax a little more and not have any worries financially.”

“I don’t have words for it,” said the son. “It’s just unbelievable and a big relief; like a big weight is off my shoulders. I’ll probably pay some bills, take a vacation, and then really take some time to think and plan for the future.”

Life Before The Lottery: The 30×30 List Living Beyond the Bucket

Life Before The Lottery: The 30×30 List Living Beyond the Bucket

DID YOU KNOW? Walt Disney went bankrupt at age 22 and was fired by a newspaper for “lacking imagination.” He went on to create 81 feature films and receive 48 Academy Awards. Dr Seuss’ first book was rejected by 27 different publishers by age 33. He’s now one of the most popular children’s authors of all time. Vera Wang failed to make the U.S. Olympic figure-skating team and struggled as an editor at Vogue. She started designing wedding gowns at age 40 and went on to become a premier clothing designer in a multi-billion dollar industry. What would you do if you had no fears and nothing holding you back? There is life before winning the lottery. In order to live your dream life, you do not need to hold the winning ticket. One girl proved it. Ashlee Bratton turned her ‘someday’ bucket list into a real life challenge with a real life expiration date crossing off 29 of the 30 items on her 30×30 list. all before turning 30! If she can do it, so can you! Take a walk down the Failure Hall of Fame and follow the flops of those who have failed miserably and yet have soared into impossible success and risen beyond embarrassment and defeat. We all have those ‘someday’ dreams rolling around inside us. Call it a bucket list, call it a someday list, call it a life list (call it whatever you want). So much more than a bucket list, take the 30×30 challenge and learn to live beyond the bucket. Dreams weren’t meant to stay in your head. You can live your dreams. It’s never too late. it’s never too soon either.
