$208M Lottery Winner Dies At Age 43

A man who won a $208 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot with his wife in April 2005 has died.

Police and a family spokesman say Ralph Stebbins died Saturday at his Michigan home of heart failure. He was 43.

Stebbins and his wife, Mary, elected to take a lump-sum payment of nearly $125 million, less taxes. The couple said they planned to use the money to buy a cow, pay off some bills and pay for a garage to house a 1963 Corvette.

Both quit their jobs after winning the jackpot. They also used their money to help several other family members retire.

The Stebbinses were married for 23 years and had three children.

Mega Millions is played in several states.
