Ryan Reynolds Shares A Touching Story About His Late Grandfather On Remembrance Day

Ryan Reynolds Shares A Touching Story About His Late Grandfather On Remembrance Day

Actor Ryan Reynolds shared an amazing story on Instagram about his late grandfather on Remembrance Day and showed his followers that he has carried on a beautiful life lesson with him.

Ryan Reynolds started his story by explaining about his late grandfather and how he led a life of compassion full of kindness and hard work. Although the grandfather had a hard time as a kid, he raised himself becoming a doctor.

He always helped those who needed care but he especially gave shoes to people in need because he remembered the days he had spent on the freezing Canadian Prairies with hole-ridden leather boots.

After WWII ended, he gave his Mk2 helmet to his neighbor named Harold. In 2018, Harold managed to contact Ryan Reynolds saying that he had something valuable to give him.

So, Reynolds on his way to Berlin for Deadpool 2 met with Harold who was in his late seventies. He wanted to return what belonged to Reynolds without anything in exchange.

This special story shared by Ryan Reynolds touched everyone’s heart, including his followers, because, as the actor said, Harold did not just give a helmet, he actually showed a wonderful example of kindness that could be passed down from generation to generation.

Here’s what Ryan Reynolds wrote:

My grandfather was a guy who by all accounts, led a life of compassion, random acts of kindness and hard work. As a kid, he was homeless, yet managed to put himself through medical school, eventually becoming a doctor.

If he saw someone with inadequate shoes, he bought them a new pair. He was always giving people stuff. But especially shoes. A holdover from his early winters spent freezing on the Canadian Prairies with hole-ridden leather boots.

When WWII ended, he gave his Mk2 helmet to his neighbour in Vancouver, a little kid from Germany named Harold. The boy and his parents kept in touch with my grandparents throughout the years, eventually losing touch in the early 60’s when the family moved back to Germany.

In 2018, I was contacted by a guy living in the Black Forest in Germany. He said he had something valuable to give me. Something that belonged to me.

It so happened I was heading to Berlin on a press tour for Deadpool 2. If he was willing to drive seven hours to Berlin, I could definitely find time to meet him for coffee.

His name was Harold and he was in his late seventies. He wanted to return my grandpa’s helmet. He wanted nothing in exchange.

More than anything, he passed on something else from my grandpa; a totally random, awesome and unexpected act of kindness.

I never got to meet my grandfather because he died well before I was spat out into the world. I did get to meet Harold though. #CanadaRemembers #RememberanceDay 🇨🇦”
