    I always enjoyed my time with my back to Steve. He was good at his profession and a good guy. I hated it when he retired. But happy for him.

    When I returned home after a haircut my wife would immediately corner me and want to know Steve’s lasted story or joke. He could have given Justin Wilson a run for the money. What a great guy…straight shooter, funny, and a very wise philosopher. A wonderful friend for 52 years

    Steve’O , my good friend and barber for many many years . Steve was at the top of his game . I too hated it when he retired . I kept up with him through Mr. Charles . When I find a guy with his talent I stay with him until he retires ! Yes , when he opened his eyes he was face to face with his Creator standing with open arms ! The more sorrowful the parting , the more joyful the REUNION .
