We don’t know if there is a formal ceremony for “Grandson of the Year”, but if there was, 24-year-old Stefun would win, hands down.
Cecil and Marilyn Roberts welcomed their grandson into their home when he was in first grade. When Stefun was in the second grade, he made a promise that he would pay off his grandparents’ mortgage.
Family members started tearing up during the emotional moment, including Stefun’s mother, Stefanie Wyatt, 40. “I started crying. It was so sweet,” she said.
The reason behind why Stefun did it was simple.
“I couldn’t stand you going to work at night, some nights I didn’t even sleep knowing it shouldn’t be like this,” Stefun wrote on his Facebook timeline.
For the past six years, Stefun was working nonstop and was being tight with his money to make sure he saved up enough to fulfill his promise.
He worked odd jobs here and there, shoot, it seemed like he was always working said a family friend. Everything from working as a cook in Pizza Hut to answering phones for a customer service company. He tried not to spend a lot of money on food, and never smoked or drank to save as much money as possible.

To all my friends that stood by me over these last 6 years I appreciate you.
Somethings was never said and I’m glad you guys had enough sense to understand I had something greater to complete. GP| GG Take this check and pay your house off, and retire from work. Y’all owe no man but God. Even copped y’all some tickets to The Bahamas 🌴🌼☀ I’ll sacrifice everything for my la familia. P.S – Avaricious. The secret is within.
