Back in about 1989, an enterprising entrepreneur opened a new Lakewood business called Mail Masters, located at 8103 Steilacoom Boulevard SW, Lakewood, Washington 98498. Mail Masters featured mailbox rentals, mail service and package processing along with some general merchandise.
It was about 1998 when Bobby Williams, only 22 years old, purchased the operation and ran Mail Masters for 13 years. He worked hard six days a week with very little vacation time.
I became a customer about ten years ago when the Pony Express Mail Center closed at the Lakewood Mall.
Bobby was always pleasant and helpful during our decade of doing business together.
Well, the bad news caught up with me this past Friday. Bobby is closing Mail Masters on January 31, 2012.
If you get a chance and you know Bobby, stop by and wish him well with his next venture.
I think he will probably take a little well deserved extended vacation. After that, he will be moving forward on his next career move. After all, “Life is an Adventure”.
Good luck to you, Mr. Williams.
