A lucky Thumb region man did what came naturally and yelled “yahoo!” when he realized that he’d won $100,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Fantasy 5 game!
Harold Barargar’s shout of excitement surprised his wife. “He yelled ‘yahoo!’ and I thought ‘What the heck he yelling about?’” she said, adding that she quickly joined him in celebrating the big prize.
Barargar, 66, of Fostoria in Tuscola County, bought his winning ticket at Bryan’s Supermarket in North Branch at 6002 N. Lapeer Road. The winning numbers for the March 18 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 05-08-14-32-35.
The retired couple collected the prize Monday at Lottery headquarters and said they plan to use their winnings to pay off debt.
