The veteran's boss knew that he could not retire because he had a debt to pay off, so he wrote his dedicated employee a check for $5,000 to pay off the rest of the mortgage.
There are many kind-hearted people who aim to do good for fellow humans. They may be someone we least expect it from, but it does not change the fact that they're here. Recently, a 69-year-old Vietnam war veteran was finally able to retire and it was all thanks to his boss. You see, Albert Brigas had been working for quite a while now.
He couldn't retire because he had a mortgage to pay off and it was supposed to go till 2020. Brigas has been working as a mechanic at Renown Auto Restoration in San Antonio, Texas for the last 13 years. He has also been living in the same house for the last 24 years, waiting to pay off his debts.

Rudy Quinones, Brigas's boss knew about the mortgage. In fact, Quinones told KENS5: “Albert has been grumbling about that for the past year. His ultimate goal was to retire and have his house paid off.”
So, as a means of expressing his gratitude to Brigas for all his years of hard work, Quinones called him into his office last month and wrote his dedicated employee a check for $5,000 to pay off the rest of the mortgage.

He also added that Brigas was a very loyal employee, and wouldn't take a leave even if he was sick. "He would come into work every day even when he was sick. Just that level of loyalty the determination you just don't find anymore."
Brigas, who was touched by his boss' kindness, said, "I got him the final numbers for the house we went to the bank and paid it off." Unsurprisingly, this was not the first time Quinones showed the world his generous side. People only had good things to say about him.
Another one of his employees, Joseph Winkler, revealed, "Not enough good news is out there and this is one of those things that I thought needed to be shared, so people know hey there are people out there that do good things for other people."
Now Brigas has more time to spend with his family. Brigas said, "We brought up my 12-year-old granddaughter and she's doing great, and now we've got a nice little grandson."
