Flint barber retires after 63 years of cutting hair

Posted: Updated:
FLINT (WJRT) - (05/31/14) - The Flint community is saying goodbye to a long time barber.

David Veasley started cutting hair in 1951. Over the last 63 years, he cut hair in multiple barber shops, like Big Daddy's Barber Shop on S. Saginaw St., and the Army.

On Saturday, Veasley turned in his clippers for a new adventure.

"I gotta couple grand kids. I'm gonna try and go around the world with them now," he said.

All day, people he touched in the community stopped by to wish him well.

"We had people who I cut when they where that big and they showed up early this morning. So I'm gonna miss these guys, I really gonna miss them," Veasley said.

ABC12 wants to wish a big congratulations to Mr. Veasley.
