Dale Schroeder of Des Moines, Iowa, was not a wealthy man in the traditional sense.
He did not flaunt his money on lavish expenses, and he certainly did not make it obvious he had such funds in his bake account. In fact, according to CNN he lived a modest life, working as a carpenter at the same local business for 67 years.
But before his death, Dale revealed that a lifetime of living below his means had helped him quietly amass a fortune of almost $3 million. And he knew just where he wanted that money to go when he passed.
