A Feel Good Friday surprise for a Scout leader battling cancer

Feel Good Friday and Ashley Furniture HomeStore are teaming up every week to bring you some good news during Feel Good Friday!

We want to surprise people in our community with random acts of kindness and leave you feeling good.

We recently learned about a man named Richard Casper. He has taught hunter education for many years and instills a love of the outdoors and firearm safety to youth in our area. He has served as a Boy Scout Camp range master just because he wanted to be able to share his love of shooting sports with scouts.

Richard is now suffering from effects of his cancer and the aftermath of a severe car crash but he is making the best of his life building furniture in his small shop. He continues to build beautiful wooden frames for Eagle Scout certificates and gives them away, free of charge, to scouts he has worked with.

We decided to thank Richard for his years of service to our community and surprised him for Feel Good Friday. Watch the video above to see what happened!
