Arthur Tunn My grandfather

Gramp's was a pretty good guy.  Wish I would of asked more questions and been more interested in his past befpre he pasted. I only have a few things my father told me about.  The first story the I remember is that durning the 2nd world war he was on a ship as a merchent marine his job was just cutting hair.  He had a nick name of  "quarters" because that was the cost of a hair cut. My father went with him at the age of 15 and had a job peeling patatoes and working kicten duties. 

After the war gramps opened his baber shop in Galt, Ontario, Canada.  The first thing he did was to offer guys just getting back from the war a free hair cut for their so they could be all  cleaned up for job hunting.
