Kenneth Staples never met a stranger.
“Growing up, you couldn’t get away with anything, because everybody in town knew him and they knew who you were and there was an immediate network of communication, even before the internet,” said his son, Chip Staples.
Mr. Staples, owner of Staples Barber Shop in Charlottesville, died Nov. 18 at age 85.
Daughter Beth Barber said she thought the barbershop was seen as important to many people because it was a gathering place where anyone could talk about anything.
