The most successful people cannot only be defined by how much money they have, but by how big their hearts are. There are those who buy things out of luxury, but a few handful still likes to associate their lavish purchases with a deeper purpose.

Usually, going to auctions are hobbies of the rich, who do not know where to spend their money on; but for rancher Steve Wells, it is more than just purchasing good stuff. In the recent auction he attended, he bought a service car of a fallen deputy worth $60,000. When the keys were handed of to him, he surprisingly gave it to someone he had never met before: the son of the former deputy, Tanner Brownlee.

“This is so huge,” Brownlee told 9News. “Having something I can actually use and drive around, that he drove around in. It just means a lot.”

Brownlee said that he had hoped to buy the car so he could have a piece of his father to himself. His father died in a shootout operation five years ago. He was so happy as he said that he had very few things to remember his father with.
