Kentucky janitor wills $175K savings to child abuse victims

Posted: Updated:

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky man who worked as a school janitor for more than three decades and never touched a dime of his pension has willed his life savings of $175,000 to child abuse victims.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports Alvin L. Randlett's estate donated the sum to the Kentucky Child Victims' Trust Fund on Tuesday. The lifelong Covington resident had retired in 2001, and died in December 2015 at age 75.

The money came from Randlett's pension and the sale of his house.

Estate executor Jeff Siska shared the news at Sixth District Elementary School, where Randlett worked for 32 years. Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear visited the school district to accept the money on behalf of the fund, praising Randlett's selflessness.

Siska says it was Randlett's "last wish to help those who can't help themselves."
