    Deceased Delivery Driver Taken to Funeral in UPS Truck - Fox

    So when Hornagold died this week of lung cancer, longtime co-worker Michael McGowan agreed to take him on one last delivery.

    McGowan transported Hornagold's body from Davenport Funeral home to yesterday's (Saturday's) funeral services in his UPS truck.

    Kudos to UPS for letting them use the package car. He must have had a sense of humor. Maybe I can be transported in a 45' trailer to mine.

    Its stories like this that give me a shimmer of hope that UPS corporate really cares about its employees like they claim.

    I'm sure the use of the package car had to approved all the way up the ladder and kudos, finally, to the management comittee in regards to granting an employee's final wishes and making his family feel special in a difficult time!
