Ray Ulvi, 88, was walking in the woods to find the perfect branch to use for his cane-making business when he came across a piece of his past he never expected.

Thinking the round thing he saw in the mud was just a snuff can, he picked it up to find a hockey puck with his initials on it he lost what he assumed to be about to be 70-some years later!

The sad part of the story is Ulvi said he couldn’t share the moment with his buddies because they’ve all passed away…

But he is still happy to have such a special piece of his past and even reached out to the company who made the puck to let them know their “lifetime guarantee” has some proof to it!

What’s the longest you’ve lost something and found it?
