John Kernoski

Having just celebrated his 105th birthday, John has lived an incredible life. First, started working in the coal mines at a young age. Then, played for the Yankees’ minor league team. From there, John joined the military to train to be a pilot. Later, he worked for Convair in San Diego. Interestingly, John is currently the only living person to have pitched for Lou Gehrig.

1955 holly furnace

1955 Holly Furnace

In 1955, he purchased his home, brand new. His furnace was original to the home and still worked to this day! Despite working in the coal mines and his impressive age, John is in incredible health and his mind is still sharp as a tack.  John keeps the heat on all day to help regulate his temperature and keep him comfortable. As you can imagine, his original 1955 furnace, while still working, is expensive to run.

It Was Meant to Be

After choosing John as one of the finalists, we scheduled a time to meet so we could verify the age of the system and that he is the homeowner. It was only then that we realized he resides on Gala Avenue, only a few houses down from the original Mauzy “headquarters”. And by headquarters, we mean a bedroom that was converted to a home office at that time.  On top of John’s remarkable life story, we couldn’t believe the coincidence of where he resides. We are truly touched to be able to give him a more comfortable home with a brand new energy-efficient heater.
