Neighbors Say Aloha to Longtime Tewksbury Letter Carrier

Prospect Hill Drive neighbors, including Joseph Kaskiewicz, above left, bid farewell yesterday to Tewksbury Letter Carrier Mark Pitts by attaching blue balloons to their mailboxes.

The street was lined with 28 blue balloons.

“Mark will be missed,” said Michelle and Steve Lavargna. “If it wasn’t for him, we probably would never have found our dog Rufus when he fled several years ago.”

Pitts will retire from the USPS after 39 years of phenomenal service with the US Postal Service. His last day delivering mail was Wednesday, May 31. To show appreciation, a stream of 28 balloons were tied to mailboxes on Prospect Hill Dr. in recognition of Mark’s final drive down this street.

“Mark has been a great mail carrier and will be missed,” said Ann DiSanto. “But we’re happy for him and this next chapter of his life.”

Mark is looking forward to riding his motorcycle and enjoying the Hawaiian Islands with his wife, Jane, during his retirement.

Jean Della Piana baked Mark’s favorite treats, while other neighbors gave him cards and gifts.
Scott & Kristin Garland  and the entire Prospect Hill neighborhood looked forward to Pitts making his rounds every morning, rain or shine.
