(Pittsburgh) -- A western Pennsylvania man who loved hunting and fishing but shunned people left virtually his entire estate to the state game commission.
The Game Commission say that the more than $349,000 gift from Joseph Trempus was highly unusual because of its size.
Most donations are more like $25, according to a commission spokesman.
Trempus died last November at the age of 93.
Neighbors say he and his late wife didn't have children and rarely socialized but, they loved the outdoors, including goose hunting and trout fishing.
The Game Commission says the donation will go toward displays and exhibits for a new wildlife learning center to be built at Pymatuning, and a room there will be named for Trempus.
