The monumental voice of the Beacon Drive In, JC Stroble has died. Stroble’s family shared with the public that J.C. passed just before 6:00PM Monday evening. J.C. began calling orders for the Beacon nearly 57 years ago, a position he held faithfully until his recent hospitalization earlier this month after falling and suffering a severe brain injury. Many were in hopes of J.C.’s return; as was shown by the number of patrons who signed his get well banner at the restaurant prior to the news of his passing.
The website the family set up on J.C.’s behalf reads, in part, “While J.C. was well-known and will be remembered from coast to coast for his signature catchphrase “Call It;” he will forever be remembered by us a devoted husband, loving father, supportive grandfather and a gentleman to all.” The family is the process of making funeral arrangements and will update the public once those arrangements are finalized.
