Iowa man maintains same lifestyle after winning $1M

Posted: Updated:

MAPLETON, Iowa (AP) -- It has been about five years since a man won $1 million in the Iowa Lottery Mega Millions game, and he mostly has kept the same lifestyle.

A friend of Bob Boehm tells the Sioux City Journal that Boehm "hasn't changed a bit."

With his winnings, Boehm has purchased two trucks and gone on a cruise to the Bahamas. He also paid for his nieces and nephews' trip to Germany, which cost around $14,500.

But he still lives in the same home in Denison and works at GFG Agri-Service in Charter Oak, where he's worked for around 25 years.

A friend drove Boehm to the Iowa Lottery headquarters, where he took a lump-sum payment of $700,000 after taxes.
