Dick Kirk left a message on September 8, 2012:
John and I go back to late 1970's. Our partnership to start Reggie's made him relocate to Appleton in 1980. I remember all of the great times we had together, both before forming Reggie's and the time we both spent in Waupaca. John made a lot of friends in the Appleton area and he will be missed by many. I am glad I got to see him in the hospital the day before he passed to say goodbye.
