“Having a haircut has never been so much fun…”

The neighborhood ‘Barber’ in his day. A life lived with integrity, even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune, is a shining star in whose light others may follow in years to come. A pioneer in the area of Chatsworth, a business man in his own way.


In loving memory of a Legend – My Father.
