A few years ago, he was there to see the first steps of a customer’s child. And there’s the time when another customer was not home, and knowing an important package would have to be delivered and signed for before close of business on a Friday, he left a note with his cell phone number.
Fernando Remigio has been delivering packages for UPS in Larchmont since 1993, and his pending retirement is reminding residents of the extra step and personal touch he would always take for them.
After 26 years total on the job, he is retiring on August 18.
“Fernando is kind to all and a really special guy. We actually have a close relationship with him as a family,” says Larchmont resident Elisabeth Cavanagh.
“Fernando came for dinner last night to see my kids. They both run to him whenever he comes to our house, and they think that he has a direct line to Santa.”
“I have relationships with so many people here,” says Remigio. “It makes me feel good, all the things they are saying. I really did the best I could to meet the needs of my customers.”
Remigio may be retiring from UPS, but he will start working at a private business soon near his home in Rockland County.
“Now I won’t have to cross the bridge every day.”
theLoop thanks you Fernando, for your years of service!
