VICTOR Doe's widow has today said her husband's memory will live on through the business he spent years building up.

As revealed on Tuesday in The Evening Doe, owner of gentleman's hairdressers Victor Doe, on Norwich Road, Ipswich, died on Monday morning at the age of 91.

Both he and his wife Peggy have been part and parcel of the life and times of Norwich Road and seen the many changes that have taken place over the years.

Mr Doe, originally from Bungay, Suffolk, retired at 65 but continued to run the administration of the shop from his home upstairs. When he got dementia two years ago, his wife took over and she is set to continue the business.

Mrs Doe, 87, said: “We want to let everyone know that the shop will still be running. We don't have any plans to close it- Victor wouldn't have wanted us to.”

Their only daughter Sue, 58, who lives next door to the barbers, will move in with her mother above the shop.
