Fargo boy mows lawns for a gravestone

Brandon Bakke, 11, spent the summer mowing lawns around his South Fargo neighborhood. He was trying to make a little money.

Bakke, a sixth-grader, is adopted and he never met his father. But he found out his biological father died in Chicago and is buried in an unmarked grave.

“I don’t think anybody should go unknown in life, even though their choices they made or anything,” Brandon tells WDAY.

So he mowed lawns.

He made money.

And he bought his father a headstone.
