Sunday, May 7, John Shea, John the Barber, was celebrated at the Upland Sportsman Club in Plympton for his 60 years in business.

John’s son and fellow barber Darren Shea introduced John to the crowd.

John spoke about how he started his barber career working for Louie Gallerani in 1963 at Louie’s Barber Shop, Hall;’s Corner in Duxbury. After working there five years he decided to open his own shop in Halifax.

John spent 18 years at his shop at the Halifax King’s Market on Route 106 before moving up the street to the Cumberland Farms location at the intersection of Routes 58 and 106, where he continues to practice with his three other barbers: Darren Shea, John’s son; Corey Socha, nephew of Darren Shea’s wife; and Jared Traynor, John’s nephew.

A good size crowd stopped in to congratulate John, including his very first customer, Paul Barber. The furthest attendee came from Texas.
