Anthony Mancinelli Working

Anthony Mancinelli, the world’s oldest barber is dead at the age of 108. The deceased whose barbing career lasted for 96 years died from jaw cancer complications in New York on September 19.

The Italian immigrant worked as a barber from age 12 until this past July in and around Newburgh, 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of New York City.
He made it to the Guinness Book of World Records in 2018 for being the oldest practicing barber.

When he started off in 1923, he charged 25 cents for his services. Leading up to his death, he worked at Fantastic Cuts in New Windsor where he charged $19 for a haircut.

An obituary published by the funeral home says he outlived his wife of 69 years, seven siblings and one of his two sons.

His son revealed that he was inducted into the Barber Museum Hall of Fame in Ohio one week before his death.
