Union Man Wins $1.1 Million in LottoMay 26, 2011
Chad Burkholder, a 36-year-old carpenter from Union, won $1.1 million in the Missouri Lotto drawing May 21 after matching all six numbers drawn.
His Quick Pick ticket was purchased at U-Gas, 3628 W. Osage St. in Pacific.
The father of three children said both he and his wife were "in shock" after learning they were holding the winning Lotto ticket.
The couple plan to pay off their home and add to their savings. They will "still work," Burkholder said, but added that the prize will make life "a little more comfortable."
He described his overall Lottery-winning experience as "excited, happy (and) numb."
For selling the winning $1.1 million Lotto prize, U-Gas received $11,000, which is equal to 1 percent of the advertised jackpot.
