In September 2012, I had the great pleasure to meet Mr. Ledell Reynolds.

He was a soft-spoken barber in Hillside neighborhood and a real gentleman. He spent nearly 60 years cutting hair in Colorado Springs.

I’m sorry to report he has finally left his spot behind a barber chair in the Hillside Plaza.

Rest in peace, Mr. Reynolds.
