      George Savage has a renewed sense of hope that there are good people in this world.

      The 61-year-old Sturgeon Falls man had his mobility scooter stolen last weekend while he was playing cards at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Sturgeon Falls.

      Savage said the scooter was his only means of transportation.

      “It's been kind of depressing sitting looking at the walls,” he said Friday. “I've been staying home a lot and I try to get a ride here and there when I can.”

      But his luck changed Friday when he was given a used mobility scooter.

      “One of my sister's friends, Jackie Miron, is a volunteer at Au Chateau – Home for the Aged in Sturgeon Falls. She found one for sale,” Savage said.

      “A gentleman named Viateur Rondeau was selling it. When I told him I was interested because I had mine stolen, he offered it to me free of charge.”

      Savage said he couldn't believe the older man's generosity.

      “Viateur is in his 80s and he said I could have it. He couldn't use it any more.”

      Savage said his brother bought him a lock and stainless steel cables three years ago to secure his scooter, but he never used them.

      “I laughed when my brother gave them to me. I thought I'm never going to use that, but now I guess I will,” he said.

      “It's kinda sad that I have to lock it up, but I will.”

      Savage said he has made up flyers and handed them out to family and friends in River Valley, Warren and throughout West Nipissing.

      The lost mobility scooter is red, has four wheels and has been customized with a windshield, canopy and rear carrier. There's a sticker on the back resembling the Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon album cover.

      The theft was reported to West Nipissing police.

      Anyone with information is asked to call 705-825-2761 or police at 705-753-1234.
