I've been barbering for about 8 years and in more shops than I can count on both hands. I was trained as an apprentice directly from my grandfather, so am quite proficient at scissor cuts and the straight razor shave is my forte.
Unfortunately, the respectable image of the professional barber has diminished to people who just can't make it anywhere else, at least in my experience and observation. Even the shops that try to recreate that old school feel, still follow the business model of the fast food type barber, in/out next, in/out next, etc...
Sorry to hear about the loss, and I hope you'll find someone who can cut your hair to your liking.

FWIW, I get a haircut every two weeks and have used the same barber for 13+ years. That is not 30 years, but it is still a while. She closed her shop and installed her barber chair in the basement of her house. She kept a few of her long-time customers. I think I am the most recent of the long-time folks, but I am an easy, simple haircut. I always have given her $10 for an $8 cut with a beard trim. The haircut itself has never changed (except it has thinned a little). I still go every two weeks. It might not hurt to ask...
This would be ideal. My mom retired from catering years ago, but still makes wedding cakes for her special customers. Good luck.
