Man Turns Yard Into Cemetery & Maze to Help Seminary Teacher with Terminal Cancer


"(The children) still say their sweet little prayers that Daddy will get better, and we explain to them that he’s getting more sick," says Erica Means, whose husband was given about 12 weeks to live.

Randall Jones is the man behind Halloween on Main Street, 1649 N. Main St. in Orem. He’s built a maze in his front yard and a cemetery in his back yard. He's also got a spider’s lair, a witches' room and a coffin for Dracula.

How Jones put it all together is pretty cool, but the purpose behind it this year is nothing short of inspirational: raising money for a family of almost nine, who are about to lose their father to cancer.

Former Orem High School seminary teacher Tony Means and his wife, Erica, have six children. Number seven is due in March.
