A retired airline mechanic is welcoming a massive Gerogia Lottery Fantasy 5 prize.
Steven Reeves of Griffin. Georgia, matched all five winning numbers in the Jan. 14 Fantasy 4 drawing, winning a $679,167 top prize.
His wife, Judy, was asleep when he discovered his win.
Reeves tapped her on the shoulder to share the good news. She said, “Won what?’ It didn’t take her but a minute to jump out of bed, he said.
The lucky lottery winner has four adult children with his wife and has been retired from Delta Air Lines as a mechanic since 2002.
I’m going to pay off my mortgage, he exclaimed. We’re going to buy new cars and share some of it with the kids and family.
