Dan McGuire said it best… Bill was critical to the founding of the Gluttons. He invited some of us to play for his church basketball team in 1964 and the “Gluttons” were born. He also signed the lease for our first clubhouse at 5611 Riverview. Without Crip – there would be no Gluttons Club …
One hundred sixteen days after the first ever marriage at the Gluttons club there was a second wedding. On Valentine’ Day Dan Sucich and Christa Rizzi were married at the club. Hardly any one knew this was in the works until they showed up for the Valentine’s Day/Mardi Gras party at the club. The ceremony was officiated by Jen Rieker.
Larry Green underwent a knee replacement last Monday. By Saturday, just 5 days later, he was partying at the club. He had the walker with him but wasn’t using it as he maneuvered amongst the partygoers.
Unlike Brother Paulsen who was nearly incapacitated after his knee replacement a year and a half ago, Larry has not crapped on the floor yet.
Some say Mr. Green had built up a layer of liquid anesthetic over the years to help in pain relief management.
Life member Bill Yates was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in St. Charles Thursday morning with shortness of breath. It was determined that he has significant blockage in his heart arteries. He is scheduled to undergo triple bypass surgery Friday morning.
Update: Bill came through the surgery alright. He had 2 grafts and everything looks good so far. Sue sends her thanks.
Update (Feb 15): Pee Wee is now home recuperating and doing well.
Also on the DL…
Former member John Tashler suffered a heart attack last weekend and has been in ICU at St. Lukes most of the week. Last we heard was he was getting better and was being moved to a regular room on Thursday.
Update (Feb 15): John went home from the hospital but was readmitted a few days later.
Our thoughts and prayers are with these guys and their families.
We just learned that Bill and Sue Yates’ daughter Marcie’s husband Wade Mathes was killed early Thanksgiving morning in a one vehicle accident in St. Charles County. Here’s a link to the story on the STL Today website: Man, 39, killed in one-car crash west of Augusta
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Julie Morris got sick while on vacation at Table rock last week. She went right to the hospital on returning to town. Seems she has some unknown infection along with double pneumonia. Julie is supposed to be released today and will continue her recuperation at home. Get well Julie!
Sad news to pass on. Mike and Larry Green’s mother, Eleanor Green, died on Friday, June 13, 2014. Visitation will be Wednesday, June 18th from 4 to 8 pm at The BAUE Funeral Home, 311 Wood Street, O’Fallon, MO. Funeral Thursday, June 19th at 10 am at St. Barnabas Catholic Church, 1400 North Main Street, O’Fallon, MO.
Father’s Day this year will be one that John Gray doesn’t forget. John had an “episode” last week, but didn’t think much of it. Annie convinced him to go to the ER on Wednesday. Tests showed that he indeed has blockages in his arteries so he was scheduled for the triple bypass on Father’s Day.
The surgery was successful and John will be in the ICU for 48 hours. If things continue to go as expected he will probably be going home near the end of the week.
Having an “episode” after the big Memorial Day Pignic is not unusual for most Gluttons, but it’s usually the next day when we feel the effects. Hats off to the cooks who perhaps contributed to this long lasting epic episode.
Seriously, our thoughts and prayers go out to Jon and we wish him a speedy recovery as he recuperates at home in Florida.
