103-Year-Old Man Earned Thousands Begging, Didn't Keep Anything For Himself.
Dobri spent his entire life giving to the needy, but he never felt the need to put his good deeds on display.
Considering that he wore homemade clothes and simple sandals, the old wise man with the long white beard looked more like a wizard than a man. The townspeople adored him, and quite frequently offered to pay for his bus fare when he could no longer walk the 15 miles to town. Unsurprisingly, Dobri always refused the offers. “Dobri is an extremely rare phenomenon,” said Bishop Tikhon from the Alexander Nevski cathedral.
This “Living Saint” was able to bring light to a community that had suffered through an incredible amount of darkness.
Sadly, one day the townspeople stopped seeing “Grandpa Dobri” outside of the church. At the age of 103, Dobri passed away on February 13, 2018. According to Nova.bg, Dobri was laid to rest in the churchyard next to the small building where he had lived next to the church since 2000. Dobri may be gone from this world, but his kind, giving spirit will live on to inspire others to help as he did.
