Leesville. It’s a small town just outside of Fort Polk in western Louisiana.
Sonny Boyz Barbershop has been an integral part of this tight-knit community for a long time.
A very long time. We’re talking decades upon decades. Over the years, it has served all kinds of customers, from a toddler to an octogenarian. When they need a fresh cut, they come to Sonny Boyz.
Sherell Lewis, Jr. took over the shop a few years ago. He carried on its rich history until tragedy struck. The barbershop was in danger of closing its doors – and the service it provided to so many – forever.
