But then, according to the station, engine driver Luke Bednarek thought it would be a nice gesture to go back and finish mowing the lawn for him.

A neighbour took pictures and posted them to the City of Baytown page on Facebook – they quickly went viral.

They finished the job and left a note saying: "We felt bad that your husband didn't get to finish the yard, so we did.".

Sadly John McCormack died two days later.

But his family told the station that their grief has been easier to deal with thanks to the random act of kindness, and that they're getting calls from as far away as New Zealand about the deed. His wife Patsy told the station: ""I just couldn't believe it, I just couldn't believe they took the time to do that."
