One Cumberland, Maryland Walmart employee got the gift of a lifetime to begin the new year!

82-year-old Butch Marion’s life changed forever all thanks to a kind customer and TikTok.

A man by the name of Rory McCarty is an avid TikTok user who goes by the handle @bug_boys. He has 275.3k followers and over 5.6M likes.

McCarty met Marion during a typical quick trip to Walmart for a pack of batteries about three weeks ago.

He noticed how senior Marion was and struck up a conversation with him.

After hearing his backstory, McCarty got the idea to start a GoFundMe for Marion to help him retire.

He took a TikTok video of Marion on December 16, 2022. The video showed the 82-year-old checking him out.

Within two days McCarty’s GoFundMe raised over $100k.

On January 5, 2023, Butch Marion scanned his last item as a Walmart employee and closed out of register 4 for good.
