I’ve been cutting Cristian’s hair for about 4-5 years now and he was always my best client. He was the nicest kid, it was an honor to have him as a client and a friend, he loved basketball and would talk about the camps he attended. Cristian will be truly missed by his friends at Legends Barber Shop. We will miss you bud.

I would like to share a story of Cristian. I was Cristian’s math support teacher last year at Grant Middle School. One day I witnessed Cristian see another little boy getting picked on. Cristian could see the boy was visibly upset and I watched him go up to the boy and tell him everything was going to be ok. He told him not to worry about what those boys said and that he (Cristian) would be there for him if he needed anything. It was one of the most sweetest things I’ve ever witnessed as a teacher. Cristian was a very special soul and it was an honor to be a small part of his life. My condolences and prayers to the family in this very hard time. Cristian will truly be missed.
