Not everyone (Rocky Haskell) was able to hide their disappointment after Glen Morris drew the winning card in the Ace of Spades Raffle. Glen Julie walks away with half of the $8,067 jackpot. There were just three cards left when Glen picked the right envelope. A new game will start at the membership meeting, April 12.
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.
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.
The Gluttons will gather together at the Corner Bar in St. Charles on the evening after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 23rd from 7 to 11 pm for a fun evening of 3-pin bowling and fun times. Bring a snack to share and buy your drinks from the bar upstairs. Cost is about $10 per person for the bowling.
GMVB 2012 is in the books. We had 56 teams that played in rain, sunshine and heat. Everyone had a great time. Thanks to all the Gluttons and friends who worked on the event, the spectators who came to watch and a special thanks to the people who played in the tournament. For without you there would be no tournament. Thanks also to those who supported the Silent Auction.
We hope to see you again next year for our 29th Annual Glutton Mud Volleyball Tournament.
A few hundred pictures follow…. Update: We’ve added a few more

Renee Krato, 16, daughter of Mike Krato passed away this morning at a hospital in Independence MO. She had gone to Kansas City with her dad, Mike and step mom Gail for a wheelchair softball tournament that Mike played in. After the tournament on Saturday, they returned to their hotel in Independence. Renee headed down to the swimming pool somewhere around 9 pm. After 20 or 30 minutes, Gail and Mike were getting ready to go down there too when the paramedics knocked on their door. Someone had spotted her floating in the pool. They pulled her out and began CPR while someone else called 911. They rushed her to the hospital but they couldn’t revive her. She was put on a ventilator to help her breathe. Her mom and the rest of her family arrived during the night. Tests concluded there was no brain activity and she was non-responsive. They removed the life support and she passed away this morning (Monday).
The family is donating her organs so other people might live.
Funeral arangements: Visitation Thursday, July 2, 1009 from 2–8 pm at Stygar & Son 13980 New Halls Ferry Rd in Florissant. Funeral Friday, July 3, 2009 at 11 am at Chapel of the Cross Church 11645 Benham Rd (behind Christian Northeast).
