Gary Rowberry Undergoes Open Heart Surgery

Update: (11/22): Talked with Gary today and he’s getting ready to check out of the hospital and go back to his apartment.  He said he’s feeling really good with minimal pain and everything is looking good. He’s going to start cardiac rehab to build himself up. He can’t drive for 6 weeks.   Once he gets his heart built back up he’ll undergo the hip replacement and said he’ll be as mean and ugly as ever and good for another 30 years.  He wants to thank everyone for their well wishes, thoughts and prayers.  He’s hoping to be able to come back to St. Louis around Christmas but if not, by February for sure.

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 on I-70 near Dave & Busters and went off the road and hit a tree. Rick was not thrown from the vehicle as first reported.  He had his seatbelt on.

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.
