Rick Jones, 54, died in the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma on May 20.
Jones was a well-liked postal worker and member of the Oklahoma City Area Local, according to the American Postal Workers Union.
"The devastation suffered by the community is almost too much to bear," Human Relations Director Sue Carney said. "At last count, at least 12 postal employees lost everything."
The homes of nine APWU members were destroyed, and dozens more had significant damage, Carney said.
