UPS Driver Taken To Cemetery In His Truck

'Happiest Man Alive' Died Last Week

POSTED: 9:45 am EDT July 28, 2008

CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. -- UPS driver Jeff Hornagold has made one last run in the big, brown truck -- to the great beyond.

The suburban Chicago man, who worked for the shipping company for 20 years, died of lung cancer last week. So, longtime co-worker Michael McGowan delivered his buddy's body to the funeral in their UPS truck.

Judy Hornagold said her late husband was "just the happiest UPS man alive." She said the final delivery is the perfect tribute.

McGowan said he plans to keep a picture of Hornagold in his truck until he retires so that they can keep riding together.

Thanks for the posting, Randy.

Jeff was my "brother" (I didn't know him personally, but we were both long-time members of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Chauffeurs, Warehousemen and Helpers of America).

My deep and heartfelt condolences to his family.



Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.--George Carlin
