This Barber Was a Cut Above the Rest

A small town Massachusetts Barber left quite a gift to the local library in honor of his late wife.   Anthony J. Ralys and his barber shop were a fixture in Athol Massachusetts for over 38 years.  Mr. and Mrs. Ralys lived in an unassuming little house on Warwick Avenue for most of their married life and were typical of the hard-Library 2016working people of central Massachusetts.  What wasn’t typical about this couple was their propensity to accumulate wealth.  The Athol public library was shocked to learn that they would be receiving the bulk of the Ralys’ $1.6 million estate.   I’m sure the shock was enough to make their hair stand on end!
