What A Guy: Rockford, Ohio Teen Takes His 89-Year-Old Great-Grandmother To Prom

Posted May 3rd, 2014 @ 8:29pm

Austin Dennison is a 19-year-old senior from Parkway High School in Rockford, Ohio (about two hours northeast of Columbus). He plays for the school's football, basketball, and baseball teams. Austin is also a church-going Eagle Scout.

Delores Dennison is an 89-year-old great grandmother to Austin. She was unable to attend her prom in 1943 because money was tight. Knowing this, Austin called his "Granny DD" and asked her to be his date at his prom. What a guy! 

Before the dance, they went to Bob Evans.

The evening wrapped up by 9PM, but these sweet memories will last forever.

Here they are dancing to one of Delores' favorites: Frank Sinatra's "How I Love the Kisses of Dolores."
