94-year-old retired judge builds pool for neighborhood kids after his wife dies

Now his backyard is filled with the squeals and laughter of kids enjoying their summer with a dip in the pool. Davison mandates that they have to be accompanied by a parent or grandparent in order to take a swim in the 32-foot pool, which has a diving board and a 9-foot deep end.


The retired judge from Morris, Minnesota, decided to bring some laughter and smiles into his life by building an in-ground pool in his backyard in July and inviting the neighborhood kids for a summer-long pool party.
