Vincent Fee Jr. was a barber working at the barbershop in Plymouth. One day while working at the shop Leroy Thibault came in looking for work. The owner had an empty chair so he hired him. He had trained at the orphanage but thought they would give him a chance. He worked one week and the owner decided to fire him. He told Vincent to fire him. Since it was a slow, Leroy got bored, got up and said, “he was out of here”. They paid him off and Vincent was happy, as he did not want to fire him since he was his aunt’s sister, Laura’s son.
