Former trucker with dementia gets to relive big rig memories

This is so sweet.

Florida Kenworth

A Florida Kenworth dealer helped a former truck driver suffering from dementia to relive his days behind the wheel.

Lifelong trucker John Kober is a dementia patient at Arden Courts Memory Care Community in Winter Springs, Florida.

Kober doesn’t drive anymore, but when a local Kenworth dealership heard about his story, they jumped at the chance to help him revive the memory of his time as a trucker with a ride along in one of their T680 trucks.

Tune in and watch this amazing story on Channel 2 tonight at 6:00pm to see us take John, a retired Kenworth driver around in one of our T680s.

Facility worker Shana Mann told local news outlet WESH 2 that “on a general basis, he’s a pretty pleasant fellow, but I’ve never seen him in this light. He’s pretty happy about this.”
