Embrace Life

The McCauleys

They met at age 14 when they both lived in the same North Buffalo neighborhood. Married now for 59 years, Harriett and Lew McCauley have three children and six grandchildren. Four years ago they moved into a beautiful patio home at Fox Run and today they continue to embrace life the same way they always have.

Lew still goes to work every day. He founded and owns McGard, an automotive security products company. Harriett is still active in numerous community activities but she also embraces every opportunity to take advantage of the numerous events on the Fox Run campus including water aerobics, happy hour at Fox’s Den and the Orchard Park Farmer’s Market At Fox Run every Thursday May through October.

After tough experiences with both of their mothers, The McCauleys decided on moving to Fox Run to give peace of mind to their children. Lew explains, “we are in good enviable shape and in good health and we count our blessings. But we didn’t want to put our kids through what we had to go through with our mothers.”

As for the Fox Run community members both Lew and Harriett fit right in. Harriett says “It’s pretty easy to stay young in this environment, nobody acts their age…and there’s such variety of activities you could do something every day of the week if you wanted and still not cover everything.” Lew explains one of the best things about Fox Run is the camaraderie, “…from my neighbors to the Fox Run maintenance staff everybody is just wonderful.”
