ROCHESTER — The city of Rochester recently recognized a Rochester postal worker for his retirement after 56 years of serving the community.

Rochester resident Ed Kane started working for the United States Postal Service on Dec. 7, 1967. Kane, 84, passed away March 28 after a battle with cancer. He will be laid to rest at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 20, in Mount Avon Cemetery in Rochester. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

“The group that I started with, I consider them the old ones, they were more concerned with the sanctity of the mail, which we maintained,” Ed Kane said during a Feb. 26 Rochester City Council meeting, where he was recognized for his service.
