"C. B. Gray, Mail Carrier Here For 33 Years Is Dead
C. B. Gray, who packed the mail here in the business district 33 years, died Thursday in California. He was undergoing surgery for a kidney ailment and died on the operating table.
Mr. Gray would have been 67 years old this August. He retired from service here in July, 1942.
Funeral services are to be conducted at Elisonore, Calif. Saturday. Surviving are the widow at Elsinore; two daughters, Mrs. D. B. Kinsey of Corpus Christi and Mrs. Floyd Ogden of this city; and a son, Bert Gray, assistant cashier at the Central National Bank.
Since retiring here, Mr. Gray had commuted between South Texas and California and only recently had returned to California to reside.
He had come to San Angelo in 1905. He began in 1902 as a postmaster at St. Mary, now Woodsboro, Tex. His father, John Gray had served 22 years as postmaster there, the son succeeding him for a two-year period.
The young postmaster, after coming here, took a civil service examination and began work in the local post office. He was a substitute for one year and then was named as a regular carrier Sept. 15, 1909. He took Route 1 which at that time included all places of business here and many of the residences. The vacancy was created by the resignation of Will Day, a clerk. The late Oscar Fertsch came off a route to take the clerk's job and Gray fell heir to the carrier's route.
At his retirement here, he estimated he had covered 110,000 miles. His total number of days, he figured, amounted to 9,960, and he toted an estimated 285 tons of mail. There were 506 boxes on the route comprising 974 individual mail deliveries at the time of his retirement."
