A well-known Springfield postal worker who has walked the downtown delivery route for more than 30 years is in serious condition Monday after he was struck by a car last week.
Cephas “Smokey” Stover, 76, of Springfield remained in Miami Valley Hospital on Monday. He has worked for the post office since 1958 and has been instrumental in its annual food drive.
“He’s kind of a fixture here,” downtown attorney Mark Roberts said. “Everybody knows Smokey and likes to talk to him. He’ll talk sports, politics. Just a real respected man in the community.”
