Heal our Rook

Hello everyone,  Brent with the Hub City Barbers Family.  David Torres "Rook" is a Barber here at Hub City Barbers. Rook and I went to barber school together in Salt Lake City. Following school, he was given a chance as an apprentice at one of finest barbershops on the west coast.

He excelled with the opportunity and earned a spot behind the chair. This is where my relationship with Rook began. He helped get myself a spot beside him where he helped fine tune my skills. Our relationship grew and he has become my BROTHER. I wouldn’t be who and where I am at today without him. I know I am not the only one that has a lot of love for Rook. HE NEEDS OUR HELP.

Last night we almost lost him. He is currently in a coma in the ICU following a motorcycle accident. He will spend another week here before moving him if he is stable. If everything goes well from here, he hopefully will be back on his feet in 2 to 3 months.

As many of you know, he is a Barber, a damn good one. And I’m not talking about just his haircuts. He is the ultimate professional with a sincerely huge heart. Rook puts a smile on everyone’s face. He loves the friendships and the lives he’s able to touch simply by making people feel better about themselves. He was meant to be a barber.
