George Arthur Tunn


Born: 06 Nov 1910


Died: 14 Dec 1991, Galt, Ontario


As the story goes my Grandfather was a barber by trade at the time and and was assigned to Lady Nelson as the barber. From what I was told my grandfathers nick name was Quarters because that's what got for each cut. After his time there he came back to Galt and opened a barber shop - and when soldiers were returning from the war, to help them look good for interviews for jobs, he gave them free haircuts.
