City leaders, fellow businessmen and friends spoke at a memorial for Springfield businessman John Q. Hammons today.
It was held at the JQH Arena this afternoon.
He was remembered as a man who was generous to his community and a man who loved the arts and sports...and as a man who rebuilt downtown Springfield.
He was also remembered as a frugal man who would wear his blue suit, red tie and tennis shoes, because they were comfortable.
Hammons died a couple of weeks ago. He was 94.
