“You don’t think you’re going to win millions once, and you definitely never think it’s going to happen twice,” said Mark Clark of South Rockwood, Michigan, after his last win this month.
“It’s hard to put into words exactly what I feel.”
Clark is 50 years old. His story of happiness begins three years ago.
At the time, he was delivering fuel at a gas station in Hudson, Michigan. He bought a lottery ticket and cleared himself of the barcode. It was written on the map that he saw the clerk – and so he did.
He put his truck back to work, went to his parents’ house to share the news – and withdrew soon after.
Fast forward this month.
Again, Clark bought a ticket for the instant game – and he won again. Again it was $ 4 million.
“We lost him about a year ago after some health struggles, and I can’t help but think that maybe that lucky coin helped me win this.”
He says he will return to his old peaceful life. His old quiet life of retirement and fishing, that is.
“My father and I have always fished together and we have great memories of that, so this will help me keep fishing and enjoy time with my son and family.”
