Retirement can be expensive. That maybe why even with a $350,000 Cash 5 lottery win in 2013, Robert Goralzick of Murrysville can only afford to be semi-retired at 72. He still works part time as a general superintendent at a construction company. That’s about to change.
Goralzick, who has also been playing the Powerball lottery since its launch in 1992, continued playing hoping for a win he can finally retire on. His wish was finally granted courtesy of a ticket he had bought at Barry Kelley’s Auto Service in Delmont. Though it did not win the jackpot, the five number match meant he still gets to win a cool million dollars! If he had correctly picked the Powerball as well, he would have shared the $421 million jackpot with a winner from Tennessee!
Now that he has won, he says he and his wife are finally ready to enjoy retirement. The quick pick ticket gave him all he needs to finally quit his job. Now he and his wife are set to fly to Florida to enjoy the sun and perhaps look for a winter home there.
Barry Kelley’s Auto Service in Delmont will pocket a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
