SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) – Funeral services were held Sunday for J.C. Stroble, known as the “call-it” man at Spartanburg's famed Beacon Drive-In restaurant.
Stroble's funeral was held at 2 p.m. Sunday at Cornerstone Baptist Church. A public viewing was held Friday.
Stroble died last week at age 71 after a fall at his home in August.
Stroble had worked at the Beacon for almost 58 years, taking customers' orders and yelling instructions to the cooks. Part of a street near the Beacon was named for Stroble in 2011. Diagnosed with glaucoma decades ago, a foundation also bears his name.
