My Dad worked for Sheffield as a delivery man for many years and then moved over to Knoll Creek Dairy when Shefflield closed. He had a retail route in Throggs Neck and on Friday nights when he had to do a "double load" I'd ride the truck with him. Stand up drive truck - cases of milk rattling...running from house to house with milk and cream and eggs. I was just telling my grandsons about one of my fondest childhood memories... sitting on the back of the truck with my Dad, taking a five minute break and drinking ice cold chocolate milk, watching the sun come up. He was out there in all sorts of weather, every night and never had a sick day. I miss him terribly.
