Raised Him Right: Son Builds 89-Year-Old Father Custom Lift to Access His Tractor

When Kentucky resident William Gallrein Jr learned that his father, a dedicated farmer, was having trouble climbing up to the cab of his tractor, the loving son built him a custom lift so he could continue the work he so enjoyed.

Gallrein Jr shot video at the family’s farm in Shelbyville on February 8 showing William Gallrein Sr, age 89, using the hoist and smiling as he gets into the cab of his John Deere tractor.

Gallrein Jr is the fourth generation of the Gallrein family farmers. His great-grandfather Edward Gallrein Sr purchased his first farm in 1929, according to their website. Credit: William Gallrein Jr via Storyful
