Farewell to JC, Our Beloved Beacon Barker
Written Aug 26, 2013 8:52pm
It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of Spartanburg’s famed Beacon Barker, John C. ”JC” Stroble. While JC was well-known and will be remembered from coast to coast for his signature catchphrase “Call It!”; he will forever be remembered by us as a devoted husband, loving father, supportive grandfather and a gentleman to all.
He was welcomed into the loving arms of our Heavenly Father and his Savior earlier this evening, August 26, 2013 at Spartanburg Regional. We are comforted in knowing that he was resting comfortably at the time of his passing.
The family is in the midst of making arrangements for the formal celebration of his life, and will share those plans publically as they become available, to include ways that JC would like his memory to be honored.
Again, we are most appreciative of the outpouring of support, kindness and prayers.
