SACRAMENTO —
A family in Sacramento just got a $4,500 gift from their father who passed away 17 years ago and a Good Samaritan just looking to buy a pool table.
JoJo Pedri Clark was looking to give the bumper pool table that her late father owned a new home. She said in a Facebook post that “the pool table just never had that same magical feeling” after her dad’s death in 1998.
After posting the pool table on Craigslist, Clark got just one hit from a man — Chris Wunderlich.
“Chris comes to get it and away they go…the memories of my dad and my childhood wrapped in a slate and green felt table,” Clark said on Facebook.
A few hours later, Wunderlich called Clark saying that he found a box containing $4,500 in cash stuffed inside the base of the pool table. Although it seems odd to have found money that’s been hidden for 17 or more years, Clark said it could have been some slot machine winnings because her father was “infamous for hiding his gambling money” from her mother.
Now, with help from an honest man from Craigslist, Clark and her family have a new story of her father to tell around the holidays.
“Thank you Mr. Wunderlich for your honesty and kindness and for unearthing a part of my dad’s past that we will talk about forever,” Clark said. “He is so missed and this story is just SO him. FAITH in humanity restored!”
