94-Year-Old Builds Backyard Pools and Invites Neighborhood Kids to Help Overcome His Loneliness After Wife's Death

A grieving widower recently built a pool in his backyard so neighborhood children and their families can have fun – and keep him company, too. Keith Davison, 94, is struggling since losing his beloved wife of 66 years, Evy, to cancer in April 2016. To create a distraction from his sadness, the retired judge built an in-ground pool into his backyard in Morris, Minnesota, and invited all those in his tight-knit neighborhood to play anytime they’d like. He hoped, when he built that pool, that the sounds of water splashing and children playing would mask the silence that has engulfed his home in the days after Evy’s passing.
