92-Year-Old Crossing Guard Retires And He's Getting The Sweetest Goodbye

It is always inspiring when you see older people receiving their just rewards. In this video, a 92-year-old crossing guard retires and gets the sweetest goodbye.

Robert Frew is a 92-year-old man who chose at the age of 75 to begin working as a school crossing guard in Florida. Each proudly wore his uniform, ‘elbow-fiving’ kids while he held up his stop sign to help them and their parents cross the road. In this viral video, Robert shares, “I was only going to do it for a couple of years, but it gets into your blood.” Before starting his second career with the school, Robert worked at a phone company.

The school gave him an honoring send-off with parents wearing matching t-shirts and holding posters that said, “Happy Retirement Mr. Bob.” In this super sweet clip you see small kids hugging “Mr. Bob” and cars honking in celebration. The principal of the school kindly declares June 4th “Robert Frew Day!”

This reminds me of the popular Bible verse that tells us to do everything for the glory of the Lord. I love how Bob found such joy in his job and wasn’t defined by his age. Since he remained in good health, he took the opportunity to brighten the days of others.

Bob chose to use his retirement years to be a blessing to his community. This not only gave others joy, but it brought a lot of fun into Bob’s life. This is a wonderful reminder that as long as we are breathing, the Lord has a purpose for us.

Although we might have different roles in various seasons, we have a purpose in Christ. Sometimes in the daily routine of work, we can forget our value. I hope that this video encourages you that whatever you do, do it for the glory of God.

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31
