About the Author
Luciano “Louis” Charles Graziano was born on Feb. 6, 1923, in East Aurora, New York. He lived there until he went into the service at the age of 20. He met his wife, a fellow soldier, in France. He came back to New York after the war and went back into his profession as a hairstylist. He and his wife started a family and had four children, born in New York. His wife was from the south and did not like the hard cold winters there, so they moved to Georgia to be closer to her sister. He took a job at Belk's in Augusta, Georgia as a hairstylist. Having so many customers from the surrounding areas, they decided to make Thomson, Georgia their home. He moved there in 1956 and opened a hair salon. Two years later, their fifth child was born. He has made Thomson his home for the last 63 years. Now at the age of 95, he is still a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), and active with the Knights of Columbus, Queen of Angels Catholic Church, and all his family. He still works part-time as a hairstylist.
