Casey McManemin

Casey McManemin & Mack's Barber Shop

Casey McManemin’s grandfather, Mack, was an unassuming man.

He graduated from barber college in Arkansas, moved to Dallas in 1920 and established a barbershop to support his family. Mack lived a simple life, and he was well respected by his family and community.

During World War II, his son Bill inscribed “Mack” on the F6F Hellcat he flew in the South Pacific. Bill was known to tell his fellow sailors that they could stop at his parent’s house for a cup of coffee and piece of chess pie.

Two generations later, Casey is honoring his grandfather by reviving a barber shop and hair salon at The Bridge. We worked with Casey to structure a grant to build and operate Mack’s at The Megan and Casey McManenimBridge so that veterans and other persons experiencing homelessness have a place to spruce up before job interviews. Casey is certain that his grandfather would approve.
