Mickey Amos Dead at 73

Mickey Amos died on Tuesday, February 26, 2019.  Mickey had suffered a couple of strokes and was deteriorating while at a nursing home in Granite City. He developed pneumonia and infection and was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in Clayton last Friday. They decided to put him on hospice care and sedated him.  He was returned to the nursing home on Tuesday and died about ten minutes after arriving there. He was a member of the Gluttons for several years in the mid to late 80s.

Mickey will be cremated and there will be no service.



McGuire Has Heart Attack

Dan McGuire, the less attractive one in the photo at right, suffered a heart attack Sunday morning (December 30). Dan was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital where they roto-rootered his clogged coronary artery and installed a stent to keep the blood flowing. He was in intensive-care Sunday but was expected to move to a regular room Monday. He was up and moving Sunday evening and is on the mend.

Dan said he feels good and they’ll keep him for 3 days because if anything goes wrong it usually happens within those three days. He appreciates your thoughts and prayers and says there’s no need to pay a hospital visit and hopes to see you all soon.

Update: Dan was discharged on New Years Day so he can recuperate at home.
