Retired Boeing Employee Wins $100,000 Playing Powerball
A retired tool and dye maker for Boeing is $100,000 richer after he matched all five white-ball numbers in the June 22 Powerball drawing. James Agnew (63113*), 61, said he planned to use the prize money to help his son.
"My son was discharged from the Navy and he needs a helping hand," said Agnew.
Agnew said he and his wife, Stephanie, also plan to save some of the prize money.
Agnew purchased his winning ticket at Site Store, 1435 S. Kirkwood in Sunset Hills, when he made a routine stop for a soda. He let the computer pick the winning combination. Those numbers were: 9, 13, 23, 42 and 51.
To date, 740 tickets worth $100,000 have been sold in Missouri since the Powerball game started in April 1992.
