Telling Stories: Spencer W. Kimball and the Service Station Guy In January, 1985, John Whiting, a man I hadn’t seen for many years, entered my office. As a teen, I’d known John and Johnny’s service station well. Whenever our family car had needed anything, we had been told to ‘take it to Johnny’s.” That January day, I learned why my father, Spencer W. Kimball, trusted John so much. Johnny began, “I’d like to tell you some things about your father that you may not know.” I turned on the tape recorder and finally learned the origin and depth of their bond.
