LOUISVILLE, Ky. — He was born the year the Graymoor-Devondale zip code was created, a fitting start for a man who’s served with the U.S. Postal Service for 36 years.
Most days you’ll see Dennis Marsee walking through the neighborhood as opposed to riding in his mail truck.
“I like walking better than curbside. It’s actually hotter in the truck,” he said.
Marsee began his career in a small town as a city carrier on Saturdays, learning a lesson he’d carry with him for the next four decades.
“You make eye contact,” said Marsee. “You say good morning and say hello. You learn their names. Instead of reading house numbers, they become names to you and it also helps in the accuracy of your delivery.”
He’s walked this neighborhood for the last 20 years and has no plans to stop.
