Gary Fultz has left the fold, and the Mammoth Lakes Post Office will not be the same.
The convivial postmaster served his last day in Mammoth this week. Next, he and his wife Kristin will tow their sports trailer back to Ludington, Mich., which they left five years ago for a life in the Sierra Nevada.
â€śWeâ€™d never even heard of Mammoth Lakes until the job came up,â€ť Fultz said. â€śIn fact, all the people in Ludington were kind of upset I took it, because I was the one in line for the postmasterâ€™s job there.â€ť
Fultz will turn 55 on Monday, the retirement age for postal workers.
