Postal procession honors Oregon City mail carrier
Daniel DiGiorgio, 54, a beloved mail carrier in
Oregon City who suddenly died last month, was honored with a unique procession.
On Aug. 10, postal trucks lined up to parade past DiGiorgio's house, flashing their hazard blinkers in silent tribute to the community member well known for making people laugh and as a fan of "Star Trek." A mail carrier for 28 years, including the past 10 in Oregon City, DiGiorgio died unexpectly in his sleep July 30.
"He liked to live life to the fullest and brighten everyone's day with his goofiness and sarcastic wit," Becky Steele said of her father. "One of his favorite things was sharing movies by streaming live movie reviews with his family and hosting 'Movies with the Postman' at his local retirement center."
A GoFundMe page was set up to help the family with unexpected expenses. DiGiorgio is survived by his wife, Jennifer; father, Bob; daughters, Destiny and Becky; and two siblings.
