The person you are thinking of is Roberto. We learn all of this information about Roberto when he is Released. The Community is quite a bit different from ours. For one thing, people are Released, a euphemism for euthanasia, once they have lived a few happy years in the House of Old. Release of the elderly is a celebration for a life well-lived, so they take the time to review the person's life and accomplishments before sending them off to die. These are simple accomplishments, but then again life is simple in the Community, because of Sameness.
