53-year-old Rory McCarty from Western Maryland is a TikToker with a huge number of followers.

His Content


He used TikTok to help him promote his business, Bug Boys, and now he’s been creating content of him on his job, exterminating creepy crawlies from different establishments.

A Great Idea


Rory once saw a clip on TikTok where young people use their influence to help elderly employees retire by raising funds online and giving them to elderly employees as retirement funds.

Finding Butch

The trend inspired Rory, so he looked for someone to help and that’s when he found Butch Marion, an elderly Walmart employee.

Their Encounter


Rory went to Walmart to get some batteries, and it was Butch who was at the checkout counter.

His Story


They had a chat and that’s when Rory found out that Butch is a Navy veteran, a father, and also a grandfather.

Selfless Man


Butch also shared that he used to work for General Motors but had already retired. However, he had to work again to help with the expenses of taking care of his ex-wife’s husband. When the man passed away, Butch kept on working to provide for his ex-wife who also passed away after some time.

Raising Funds


Rory opened a GoFundMe for Butch to help him finally retire. On the third day, it had already hit its goal and reached $100,000.

He’s Grateful
