Lori Reed has put her father’s El Dorado Hills barber shop up for sale, three weeks after Vernon Brogdon unexpectedly died.

Brogdon, 66, owned and operated The Village Squire Barber Shop in The Village at the corner of Green Valley Road and Francisco Drive. For more than 17 years he cut his neighbors’ and friends’ hair.

“It was a man’s place to go,” Reed said of the barber shop. “His death was a complete shock for so many people.”

The Village Squire Barber Shop became a place where men went to talk military, history and more, she explained. Brogdon’s clients included many veterans.

While cleaning up the shop Reed said one client, a veteran, showed up and read the posted death notice. “He just looked at the door … I thought he was going to cry. He shook his head, took off his hat and saluted the door.”

Reed said she’d love to have someone take over The Village Squire Barber Shop so her father’s clients can keep their familiar “man’s” place. The shop is for sale on craigslist under the Business/Commercial heading.
