Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

Good things

Retired USPS employee Marty Schill with Wayne Tuttle.


Investing for the future is a solid component of a comprehensive retirement plan. Former USPS employee Marty Schill saw the wisdom of preparing for a post-working life, and routinely invested his money in avenues that provided future growth opportunity. One long forgotten element of that strategy recently came to light when he received an unexpected call from Wayne Tuttle.

Tuttle is a custodian at the Sherwood Station in Topeka, KS. He was in the process of removing lockers recently when he encountered a piece of paper on the top shelf of one of the removed lockers. The item was a U.S. Savings Bond issued in 1983 with Schill’s name on it. Tuttle found Schill’s contact information and called him to let him know he had found something he’d be interested in.

Schill was grateful for the discovery and return of the bond. Originally purchased for $50, Schill took the bond to the bank and discovered that it had increased in value from the $100 face amount to $280.

“I thanked Wayne for being diligent in checking my locker and for bringing such a surprise to my house,” said Schill.
