Track the progress: 77-year-old veteran with Parkinson’s disease receiving much-needed home repairs

Spencer Solves It first reported the story in March, now the veteran is getting a complete home makeover

MISSSOURI CITY – The 77-year-old veteran, who was in need of some major home repairs in Missouri City, is now getting the help he most desperately needed.

Harry Arrington’s home was damaged during the winter freeze, which caused several of the pipes inside his home to burst, flooding the entire house.

Being all alone and battling Parkinson’s disease left Arrington with little hope and only a little help from his insurance company.
