He was the son of William Post, II and Isabella Garrin. When he was about 8 years old, his mother died and his father later commited him to an orphanage. As an adult, he drifted through various careers, working as a truck driver, labourer, barker and cook for circuses. He also spray-painted pipelines for oil companies. He had 9 children by his 2nd wife and later 1 child with a companion. In 1987 he suffered a job-related injury for which he received a disability income. On February 24, 1988 he won $16.2 million in the Pennsylvania state lottery and he opted to be paid in annual installments of $500,000 at a time. Unfortunately he went through the money quickly and in 1996 filed for bankruptcy. Latterly, he lived on benefits and was on oxygen to aid his failing lungs before finally succumbing to respiratory failure at UPMC Northwest @66. He was survived by his 7th wife. On Wednesday, January 18, 2006 his obituary was published in the `Pittsburgh Post-Gazette' and Hutchinson Funeral Home handled the arrangements.
