Jean Laborde, a 54-year-old father of five and chauffeur of the late record-label owner Alan Meltzer, received $1 million from his former employer after Meltzer’s death in October 2011. Laborde said, “I don’t know what to do exactly with the money, but one thing I know for sure – each year I’m going to bring the guy some flowers for his grave.” Meltzer, who had become a celebrity high-stakes poker player in recent years, also left $500,000 to his doorman, Chamil Demiraj. Meltzer's passing at the age of 67 came a year after his wife of 13 years divorced him, and both of the former employees are said to have supported him through the messy process.
