A New Year's story of a truly wealthy man

Email

Ah, the new year is upon us. The media has been featuring stories of rich, famous people who died in 2009.

Let me share the story of one of the wealthiest fellows I ever met. His name was John Swiatek. He died a week ago, just shy of his 84th birthday.

John was born in 1925, the only son in a family with six daughters. His family lived in a row house on Pittsburgh's North Side.
