CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. – Jeff Hornagold loved being a UPS driver.
So when the suburban Chicago man died this week of lung cancer, longtime co-worker Michael McGowan agreed to take him on one last delivery.
McGowan transported Hornagold’s body fromto Saturday’s funeral services in his UPS truck.
McGowan says he plans to keep a picture of Hornagold in his truck until he retires so that they can keep riding together.
Hornagold was a UPS driver for 20 years, and his wife Judy Hornagold described him as “just the happiest UPS man alive.”
She says the special delivery was the perfect tribute.
