What Stice did not know at the time was that the 91-year-old man was also currently undergoing treatments for skin cancer.
Arthur McAfee offered to pay Stice for helping him with his flat tire but Stice refused the money.
Despite it being a cold winter day, Stice was still willing to help McAfee even though he was not dressed for the conditions.
What Stice did not know was that someone had discreetly taken a picture of Stice's act of service and posted it online. It was Stice's girlfriend who told him that his picture was all over Facebook.
McAfee was also unaware of the viral picture until a friend from church mentioned it to him.
The fact that this picture spread so quickly is a testament to the fact that so many people loved the spirit of selflessness that Stice expressed when going out of his way to help a stranger in need.
