RICHFIELD, Utah (ABC4 News) – A 91-year-old Richfield mailman is retiring with a perfect record after more than 69 years.
Jack Lund started in 1949 and has had a career spanning eight decades. During that time, he never failed to deliver the mail despite severe mountain weather, vehicle breakdowns, and other challenges.
Richfield-area postal employees who have worked with Lund for years report he’s not only reliable, he also conducts himself with the utmost honesty and integrity and has done it all with a smile.
A ceremony was held in his honor on Wednesday where he was presented with a U.S. Flag, special postal artwork and a letter of thanks and commendation.
In attendance at this ceremony were his family and friends and postal employees who worked with and knew Jack.
