John and Kathi Gaspar were married on Sept. 7, 1968, at St. Turibius Catholic Church in Chicago, IL. They celebrated their 50th anniversary with family and friends at their home in Prescott. Later in the week, the celebration continued at the Chicago Cubs vs. Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game where a surprise announcement was posted on the scoreboard by their “favorite 8.” John and Kathi are owners of Treat Center on Whiskey Row and still participate in the everyday operation of their business.
