A year after the death of his wife, Evelyn whom he married 65 years ago, Keith Davison, 94, struggled with the deep silence in his home.
The retired judge from Morris, Minnesota, decided to bring some joy, laughter and smiles into his life by building an in-ground pool in his backyard and inviting the neighborhood kids for a summer-long pool party.
“I’m not sitting by myself looking at the walls,” Davison told NBC affiliate KARE.
Davison’s wife, Evelyn “Evy” Davison, died of cancer in April 2016 at 90 years old, just four days before their 66th wedding anniversary.
“You just can’t imagine what it’s like,” Davison said. “You cry a lot. That’s just the way it is, because she’s not here.”
Now his backyard is filled with the squeals and laughter of kids happy and enjoying their summer with a dip in the pool. Davison mandates that they have to be accompanied by a parent or grandparent in order to take a swim in the 32-foot pool, which has a diving board and a 9-foot deep end.
He also often hops in the pool himself for a swim after the kids go home.
Davison, who has a daughter and two sons but no grandchildren, has become somewhat of a surrogate grandfather to the local kids.
“It’s him spreading joy,” neighbor Jessica Huebner told KARE, “throughout our neighborhood for these kids.”
