A local family feels they have celebrated a milestone of sorts.  Five generations of their family have used the same barber.

Martin Schneider’s barbershop that has been on main street Bentley for about 55 years has had members of the Thevenaz family from Bentley coming regularly.

It started with a young Martin Schneider cutting the hair of Maurice Thevenaz (wife Berthe) as an older gentleman.

Maurice’s son Michel (Mitch) went regularly to Martin.  He was married to Jean.

Mitch’s son David followed suit.  David and Brenda’s sons saw a lot of the Bentley Barber Shop.

Now David’s daughter has taken her son to Bentley for his first ever haircut.

Nine-month-old Oliver, son of Drew and Kenleigh Pasay from Penhold, was introduced to barber Martin Schneider at an October 30 appointment.

Martin turned on his usual charm.  As usual for one so young a few distractions were needed to keep Oliver on his mother’s lap so Martin could do the trim.

“Oh, you look like such a little boy now,” said mother Drew as her son’s hair trim progressed.

Promptly after Oliver was done, grandpa Dave hopped into the barber chair.

“I had been putting it off on purpose just so I could come at the same time as Oliver,” said a delighted Dave who wanted a hair and beard trim.

Both grandson and grandpa left the Bentley barbershop sporting a neat trim masculine look.

Now Bentley barber Martin Schneider has cut the hair of grandson, father, grandpa, great-granddad, and great-great-grandfather of the Thevenaz family.
