After a tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma, in May 2013, Steve Riddle and his son found in their backyard a muddy envelope filled with a slip from a credit union and $500 in cash. They discovered that the money had been withdrawn from Tinker Federal Credit Union, and so Steve and his grandson returned the money to the credit union. Norman branch manager Lori Stueven said about Steve and his son, “They decided that they needed to turn it in to the credit union and get it to its rightful owner.” She lay the money out on her desk to dry. Steve’s wife said, “He wanted to show our grandson the right thing to do.” Ms. Stueven said about the grandson, “I noticed that he just kept staring at that money thinking, ‘Wow, that is a lot of money.’ But his dad or his grandfather said that you know this is the right thing to do. This money doesn’t belong to us and we need to get it to its rightful owner.” She added about Steve’s honesty, “It makes us proud to live here and work here.”
