UPS worker spends 4 years trying to place a lost package

The Daily Catch - J-P Mauro - published on 02/01/17

Randy Hoist, a hard-working member of the UPS team, has finished a 4 year journey to find the owner of a lost package:

The package ended up at Hoist’s store because the recipient no longer lived at the listed address, KARE reported. The sender, who lived in Twin Cities, was nowhere to be found as well. “When it came back to us, we tried to find the sender of the package, that number had been disconnected,” Hoist told KARE. Once Hoist realized what was inside, he made it his mission to track down the man’s son, sending several dozen Facebook messages to potential relatives. It took longer than expected, but Hoist eventually found the rightful owner of the package earlier this month: a man named Tim Burchell, who now lives in Florida. The time and effort Hoist put into the search was worth it, saying he felt like a “giddy kid” when he found Burchell, who was overwhelmed to be united with the invaluable family heirlooms. “I can’t express how thankful I am that Randy was so passionate to find us,” Tim said.“I couldn’t have asked for a better start to 2017. Receiving this package has been priceless.”

When the insurance doesn’t cover priceless family heirlooms, it’s great to know that there’s a man like Randy Hoist to make sure the packages reach their destination. Even if it takes 4 years.

Cheers to Mr. Hoist for taking such pride in his work.
