Though it’s unclear if Barlow has been able to track down Formby’s family, according to an online obituary at, his parents Danny and Robin Formby live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It’s not known if they actually left the dollar bill or if someone else got their hands on it and passed it off to Barlow.

Formby was a New Orleans native who was living in  Kansas City, Kansas, at the time of his death. Although he worked as a sorter and hazardous material inspector for UPS, he was also “an avid Frisbee Golf enthusiast and was an artist and writer,” according to the online obituary.
