He runs his own barber's shop, Reece's Hair & Facial Studio in Idlewood, Los Santos. He has known the Johnson family for a long time, evident by his memories of Carl Johnson's childhood and casual and relaxed attitude toward Carl. According to Ryder, Reece suffers from Alzheimer's disease, as Ryder claims that Reece 'popped his membrane years ago'.
He remembers Carl Johnson's childhood, when his mother brought him to the barber shop and comments on how grown-up he is. Old Reece also apparently knows Big Smoke, as he asks Carl to tell Big Smoke to get a cut, despite the fact that Big Smoke is bald.
- GTA San Andreas
- Old Reece bears a strong resemblance to Morgan Freeman. Interestingly, Freeman's father was also a barber.
- Old Reece is the only character with a unique model (not counting girlfriends) that can be met while not on a mission. He can also be encountered in Vigilante missions.
- In the Beta version of GTA San Andreas, Reece had a slightly different appearance and didn't wear glasses. This can be seen in a short video on the official GTA San Andreas website.
