PEORIA, Ill.– A Peoria man is celebrating 50 years of service to Central Illinois. His job takes him through all four seasons trekking through rain, snow, heat and more.
It takes a lot of dedication to have a single career span five decades, but it takes an exceptional person to inspire others along the way.
USPS mailman and veteran Dennis West, is this week’s CI Hero.
For West, an Army Veteran and man of service, it’s just another day on a job he loves: delivering mail to peorians.
“It’s fun out here,” said West. “You gotta just look at it that way.”
