Three generations of one family are working under the same roof.

When Terry Timberman opened Timberman's Barber Stylist in November 1963, he did it because he wanted to own his own business.

"I wanted to be my own boss," he said. "It is a good profession and I enjoy it."

For 20 years, his business has been located at 2 E. National Ave, Brazil where he greets customers with a smile and concern for a mistake made by another hairstylist.

"People are not serious about a hair cut until they get a bad one," he said with a laugh.

Eight years ago T.G. Timberman, Terry's son decided to pick up a pair of shears and join his father.

"I like my job, its fun, and we have good people in Clay County," T.G. said.

A few months ago, Terry's grandson Zebb Butts joined the business.

"I thought about joining my senior year in high school," he said. "I grew up hanging out with grandpa at the business."

All three specialize in men's hairstyles and classic haircuts. In their spare time, they enjoy deer hunting, fishing and cheering for Purdue.

They have a special "wall of fame" for individuals to come and place a picture or a story about their latest 'trophy' while in the woods.

"We are just doing our part to stimulate the economy," T.G. said with a laugh.

With more than 50 years combined experience serving the people in Clay County the Timberman's are very thankful for the continued success of the business.

"The people in Clay County are wonderful," Terry said. "I would like to thank all of them for their support over the years."
