Impeccable is how I describe Jimmy (and his family). I miss him! From the first cut in the 80s he was the barber of choice for cutting my hair. A long time female customer, I really appreciated the delicate balance he found for a short, elegant yet feminine cut. His advise was always candid and honest. Later when I changed my style and crossed the barbershop floor to see his wife, daughter, and stylist in the beauty salon, I would share a chat with Mr. Wisdom and he shared some wisdom. A gem of a man. With love Mr. Jimmy.

On behalf of my wife and myself our deepest condolences on the death of Jimmy .
I first met Jimmy at the Golden Barber Shop on Bathurst St. and it was by accident Solomon was away and Jimmy offered to do the honours and the rest is history , only once since then and I am talking about 40 years did I have a cut by another barber .
I think that speaks about satisfaction . We became great friends over those years shared pleasantries about families , sporting events and travels . I will miss Jimmy sadly . May he have eternal rest . To the entire family deepest condolences .
Winston Dowrich .

My husband would leave all the way from Scarborough to go by wisdom for his hair cut. He always says that Jimmy knows what he likes. We will miss him dearly. RIP Jimmy.
