A couple from New Brunswick, Canada, talks about life after winning a million dollars
Bruce Rupert and Shelley Brewer, a married couple from Lower Norton, New Brunswick, Canada, won a million dollars (nearly R60.27 million) in Lotto 6/49 in February. In a recent interview with a local publication, they told how the large sum has impacted their lives.
Rupert, 57, served in the armed forces, then worked as a firefighter for 10 years and as a paramedic for another 23 years. He called his lottery winnings a paycheck without having to work too hard. Brewer, 63, noted, I’m not a big spender. I’ve never been the type of person who goes out and buys jewelry and lots of clothes and makeup and things like that. I’ve never been that kind of woman.
The couple reported that they invested almost the entire amount they won for a modest but steady income. Brewer said she still looks for sales at the grocery store, and Rupert gets his hair cut at home like he used to.
However, the couple splurged on new cars — a GMC Sierra for Rupert and a 2021 Buick Encore for Brewer. The woman won $200 in a contest the dealership held that day. Her biggest treat, however, was the opportunity to gift her former car, a Kia Forte, to her daughter.
Rupert noted that it took him a while to realize that he no longer had to run to work. He said: There was a time when I thought I overslept. I washed my face, showered, put on my uniform, got to the door, and realized, ‘Wait a minute. I’m retired. What am I doing? Rupert also reported that he continues to buy lottery tickets about twice a week. According to Brewer, he often wins small amounts.
Recall: Macau’s May revenue was $760 million higher than Las Vegas.
