My mother, Irene Shaker, wanted me to send information to you on my uncle who passed away last month. She would like for you to share it on your site, Good Morning Gloucester. She enjoys your blog and reads it faithfully. Below is a paragraph on my uncle as well as a photo. Please let me know if you need anything else.
Thursday will be one month since Alfred Ina passed away, leaving a terrible void in the Ina family. Al grew up in Magnolia and was a 1955 graduate of Gloucester High School. He attended Miami University and began his career as a hair stylist in New York City, eventually opening a shop in Magnolia next to his mother’s elegant boutique, Ina’s of Magnolia on Lexington Avenue. Al enjoyed his clients from all over Cape Ann. He eventually retired to West Palm Beach until moving to Columbus, Ohio last year to be near family.
