PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — The Kentucky man leaving giant tips at restaurants around the nation in the name of his late brother has struck in New Hampshire.

Seth Collins of Lexington, Ky., handed a $500 tip Monday to 23-year-old waitress Taylor Dube at the Portsmouth Gas Light Co. Pizza Pub.

Dube said Collins spent about $7 on the pizza buffet. When he started giving her the money, she was in shock.

The 34-year-old Collins is handing out the tips in honor of his brother, Aaron, who died in 2012 at age 30 and indicated in his will he would like a generous tip to be given to a waitress. The gesture turned into a national trip.

Collins said aid he has about 10 more states to check off his list before he’s done.
