A carpenter from Union, Missouri, is constructing more than buildings these days.
After matching all six numbers drawn in the Missouri Lotto’s drawing on May 21, Chad Burkholder is also making millions.
His Quick Pick ticket won him the $1.1 million jackpot.
The father-of-three said both he and his wife were in shock after learning they were holding the winning Lotto ticket.
The couple, who plan to pay off their home and add to their savings, will still work, but he added that the prize will make life a little more comfortable.
As for his overall Lottery-winning experience, the elated 36-year-old said a few words to describe how he is feeling, excited, happy (and) numb.
