Our Bright Spot shines on Lou Benigni!

This Korean War veteran has been cutting hair for 70 years, and whom better to surprise him on his 90th birthday than a barbershop quartet!

He’s been in the Metropolitan Building most of those years, catering to businessmen and politicians, including former sheriff Andrew Meloni.

“He’s loved by everybody,” said his daughter, LouAnn Benigni-Lynch. “From the time he was down at the Four Corners Barbershop with my grandpa, and the 45 years he’s been here, everybody knows Lou the barber!”

“Somebody told me a long time ago, if you like what you’re doing, you’ll never have to work a day in your life,” Lou told 13WHAM.

We offer Lou a Bright Spot salute. He inspires us all to keep the scissors sharp as long as we can!
