That’s a lot of clogged drains — a Canadian plumber has donated $25 million dollars to a British Columbia hospital.

The 82-year-old started out as an apprentice for Vancouver-based Keith Plumbing and Heating Company in 1954. Sixteen years later, he owned the business and today has 200 people working for him.

“I’m just a plumber who worked hard and had some good luck in my life,” said Paul Myers.contemplation-view-sunset-old-couple-CC- dominique_cappronnier

Now, the Lions Gate Hospital has renamed its South Acute Tower after the pipe-patching philanthropist.

Myers says he’s a bit overwhelmed by people’s reaction to his gift–he just wanted to “make a difference.”
