Old Reece is a local barber, seen at Old Reece's Hair & Facial Studio in Idlewood, Los Santos. He has known the Johnson family for a long time, evident by his casual attitude toward Carl among some of the things he says. He is also suggested to have Alzheimer's disease, since Ryder makes mention about Reece having "popped his membrane years ago". Although it may not be purposely, he bears a small resemblance to Morgan Freeman. Coincidentally, Morgan's father was a barber. Reece was voiced by Bill Reese.
He remembers years back to Carl Johnson's childhood when his mother brought him to the barbershop and commented on how grown up he is. He is somewhat a father figure to him and other kids on Grove Street. He also knows Big Smoke, telling CJ to remind him to get a haircut.
Old Reece can be killed at any time while you are in his barber shop, however he'll just respawn after you exit.
