     It is with regret and sorrow that the National Union announces the passing of Local 307 mail handler, Anthony Smith.  Brother Smith is the first known mail handler death attributed to the COVID-19/coronavirus epidemic. Brother Smith worked in the Detroit NDC and was an employee of the United States Postal Service for thirty years. He was a proud mail handler.

     Anthony was a veteran having served honorably in the Army for 12 years. He was married and loved kids; he helped raise fifteen children. Anthony loved music, a good barbeque and singing karaoke. He was a funny man that enjoyed telling jokes and spending time with family and friends. Anthony Smith will be deeply missed by family, friends and all that knew him. Please keep Brother Smith’s family and loved ones in your thoughts and prayers.
