End of an era: Longtime Toledo postal worker retires after 52 years

TOLEDO (WTVG) – It was the first year of the Super Bowl, the postage stamp cost 5 cents, and Daniel J. Miller began his career as a mail carrier in Toledo.

Daniel J. Miller celebrates his retirement after 52 years with the U.S. Postal Service in Toledo.

That was 52 years ago, and now Miller is retiring from the U.S. Postal Service.

“I made up my mind to start here back when I was in high school said I’m going to be a mailman someday, and that was probably back when I was about 16,” Miller said.

Friday morning, Miller started his last shift out of the USPS Franklin Park Post Office. His co-workers were ready to send him off to retirement with plenty of love.

“I’m going to miss the place,” Miller said. “If I had to do it all over again, start when I was 18, I would do it all over again.

“It was a big surprise and it is a bittersweet day for me, being here 52 years.”
