MILWAUKEE (AP) – The United States (US) Postal Service employee who was killed on Friday while he was delivering the mail in Wisconsin is being remembered for his positive and caring attitude.
The US Postal Inspection Service in Chicago confirmed Aundre Cross was the worker who was shot and killed on Friday evening on the north side of Milwaukee, according to the Journal Sentinel.
Before transferring to his current route, Cross delivered mail to the New Pitts Mortuary in the Franklin Heights neighbourhood.
Mortuary owner Michelle Pitts said she is devastated over Cross’ death.
“He was a person that could light up the room,” Pitts said. “When he walked in to deliver our mail, he would literally light the funeral home up because he was always so jolly.”
A former co-worker said the 44-year-old Cross had four children.
