Charlie Darling cuts longtime client Ronald Wright’s hair Thursday. Darling plans on closing his shop with sights set on retirement next week after 51 years in business.

ELKHART — Longtime clients of Charlie Darling are making trips to his barbershop in west-central Elkhart for a final haircut.

The 74-year-old barber will put his clippers and scissors down next week to embark on a new chapter that will not include a career that’s kept him busy for over five decades.
