UPS delivery driver hangs up brown uniform after 46 years - Montana Standard

When Tim Rowe started washing trucks part time at the United Parcel Service when he was 18 years old, he couldn’t have predicted that it would end in over 1 million miles, 38 years of safe driving, and 46 years of service.

Rowe still remembers the day he started at UPS: April 14, 1976.

“I was graduating from high school at the time, and I had no idea what I wanted to do,” Rowe said. “As far as career goes, I [knew] college was not for me.”

Rowe said UPS drivers had to be 21 years old, so he spent three years washing trucks until he was old enough. And sure enough, after he turned 21, he began driving a UPS delivery truck.
 
He beat my record by one year, I hope his body is in good shape. I got a stress fracture in one of my metatarsals stepping out of my package car one day. That was the point I figured to pick a retirement date, I'm not going to limp around in pain the rest of my life.
I'm glad you finally made it out my friend
