I can say that John Foster was the epitome of Americana. I knew him all my life and to this day think about him very fondly. You see my father owned the furniture store next to the toy store, still owns the building. I am 46 years old now and was literally a kid in John and Kay's toy store. I spent every Saturday in there as a kid and always bought at least one toy or a model from Wally in the bike shop each one of those Saturdays.
One sound that I happily will never get out of my head was the air drill from the Goodyear store when they removed tires. I also used to climb the giant pile of tires in the back. In the summer when I was there during the week, I would go over there and buy Yoohoo's from in the refrigerator.
I was so lucky and it was so small town. It was my fathers store, Bob Waltons Dodge dealership and Fosters Toy Store.
I'm very thankful I knew John Foster, I'll never forget him.
