He then opened a shop at home where he continued cutting hair for a total of over 60 years. Moses always loved his customers and never turned down a haircut to anyone. He even cut hair for the local nursing homes and funeral homes. He really loved the public. Moses loved his yards and always aimed to keep them beautiful. He loves spending time at the creek with family and friends.
