Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Jack was born in Stratford, Ontario, Oct. 17th, 1928. He spent his growing up years on the old farm on the Mitchell Road near the village of Motherwell, Fullarton Township, Perth County, Ontario. In 1942 at the age of 14 he contracted scarlet fever, which destroyed his hearing and any chance of a normal life or to further his education. Unable to find steady work because of his hearing loss he was encouraged to become a barber by Dickie Thorne, the local shoe store man in his home town of Mitchell. For over forty years Jack cut hair in south London. This is the story of the life and times of Jack the Barber, Getting By In A Silent World.
