Man, 92, Still Working At Post Office

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (UPI) — A New York state man who began working for the U.S. Postal Service when he was 70 is now 92 and the oldest postal worker in a district including eight states.

Officials said Charles Cook, of Pittsford, who works as a supervisor at the mail processing center in Henrietta, is the oldest employee in a district including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, Delaware, and portions of New York, West Virginia and New Jersey, the Rochester (N.Y.) Courier Democrat reported Thursday.

“I say, ‘If you think I’m going to be replaced and they’re going to bring in some greenhorn to do my job, you’re crazy,’” Cook said. “I’m going to be here for another 25 years.”

Cook said he began his career with the Postal Service after a doctor told him when he was 70 he should seek out a job with a lot of physical activity to extend his life.
