UPS driver, 79, ready to deliver on a 6-decade record - Accuweather

Over his 57, going on 58, years of delivering packages for UPS, Tom Camp has driven the equivalent of two round-trips to the moon, or about 40 trips around the equator. In a rare feat that only one other, now retired, UPS employee has accomplished, Camp has reached this mileage without a blemish on his driving record.

"Tom Camp is a simple man with a very driven work ethic," AccuWeather National Reporter Blake Naftel, who profiled Camp for the TV network, said. "He lives alone, enjoys talking sports and cars, but his primary spark in life literally comes from delivering packages at UPS. It's his life."

Ron Sowder of Dayton, Ohio, is the only other UPS employee who has reached 50 years behind the wheel of a brown delivery truck. Sowder retired in 2012 with a "50" on his uniform patch. Camp is the proud owner of a "55" on his own jacket.
