Rick Walton Killed in Crash

Glutton Brother Rick Walton was killed in a car crash around 5 pm Sunday afternoon October 8, 2017.  Details are sketchy but apparently, he was on his way home from a benefit for a friend in the St. Charles area when he lost control of his truck and went off the road and hit a tree. Rick was thrown from the vehicle.  No other vehicles were involved.

Rick joined the Gluttons in 2002 and was instrumental in clearing the lot next door and general upkeep of the yard and property for most of his fifteen years.

Services: Visitation will be Thursday, October 12 from 4 to 8 pm. at Bucholz Mortuary, 1645 Redman Road in Spanish Lake. There will be a graveside service on Friday, October 13 at Walton Chapel Cemetery in Ellsinore MO (near Poplar Bluff MO).

Alk hospitalized with double pneumonia

Al Karniski was hospitalized over the weekend with double pneumonia and God knows what else.  He’s a Mercy Hospital (formerly known as St. John’s Mercy) on Ballas near 40 and 270.  Al has been feeling like crap for about 10 days. That crap turned into double pneumonia.

He’ll probably be in the hospital for a few days.

Elenore ‘Momma’ McGuire Dead at 91

 We’re sad to report that ‘Momma’ McGurie passed away on Sunday, June 11, 2017, after a brief illness.  

Mom McGuire was the Mother of founding members Dan and Don McGuire.  As the name “Momma” McGuire indicates, she was, in many ways, a second Mother to us all.   She was made an Honorary Member of the Gluttons in 1971.

A simple private funeral will be held on Thursday, June 15, with a Celebration of Life to follow at the Gluttons Club from 4 to 8 pm on Thursday.

 

Momma McGuire Under Hospice Care

Got the sad news today that Elenore ‘Momma’ McGurie is going under hospice care.  She has undergone surgery on her kidneys a couple of times recently but it apparently isn’t working. She has other non-treatable problems and the outlook isn’t good.

Momma McGuire, 91, has been an honorary member of the Gluttons since 1971.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire McGuire family.
