The founder of Flint staple steak and onion joint Big John’s Steak and Onion died at age 88 at an assisted living facility in Flushing, reports The Flint Journal. If you are from the Flint you most definitely have eaten a couple of Big John’s subs before, I know I have had my fair share. I have also spoken to quite a few band members that come through Flint and make sure they stop at Big John’s while they are here saying that Flint’s Big John’s will give any Philadelphia steak and cheese sandwich a run for it’s money.

According to John Klobucher’s obituary, he opened up the first Big John’s Steak and Onion in 1973 a decade after bringing the first Kentucky Fried Chicken to the area.

Visitation will be held 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. Thursday at Allen Funeral Home, 9136 Davison Road in Davison. A funeral Mass will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 2500 N. Franklin Ave. in Flint.
