Eddie DiPonzio owned the 2nd longest-lasting business from the old days on Thurston Rd. After Crowley, his shop had been here longer than anyone's. And his memories of all who lived in the neighborhood; he could tell you whose sister married the guy one street over, how many siblings Mike had, and where his dad worked. Such tidbits made getting a haircut at Eddie's even more of a treat. It was fun waiting as you listened, and seeing who you would meet.

His customers now also live in Gates, Greece, and far-flung outlying areas. They still always went back to Eddie's. So it is sad to see him leave Thurston. Everyone will miss him. But he has certainly earned it!

Go in to the 19th Ward Community Association office to sign a card wishing him well. They'll send it off on Oct. 16th. Wish we could have a party, but Covid prohibits.

Here's a link to their video of him in the shop; page down upon arrival. https://19wca.org/2019/10/19/history-committee-videos/
