Joe Barca, Sr. of Elmer, New Jersey started cutting hair in 1931. Eight decades later, he's doing it--even last Thursday, when he turned 99 years old. New Jersey Online reports:
He was at his South Main Street barber shop, comb and scissors in hand giving hair cuts.
But his family and friends made sure they marked the special milestone.
An open house was held Thursday at Barca's Barber Shop with many stopping by to offer their well-wishes. There were even balloons and refreshments. The words "Happy Birthday" were stretched across the large mirrors in the shop. […]
"You don't get into this for the money," said Barca in an interview back in 2013. "... the joy comes from meeting all kinds of people — they make it worthwhile."
