A drone’s eye view of the club taken this (Saturday) morning.
Sad to report that former Glutton Tom (Tommy) Smith (AKA Tommy Salami) passed away at his home in Florissant on April 5, 2018, after a long battle with colon cancer. Tom was a member of the club in the mid-1990s for a few years. His dad, Tom Smith also was a member for most of the 1990s.
Tommy gave me permission to post this video he made when he did a Show & Tell in his communication class in 2011: Show & Tell: Dad goes back to school
Visitation will be held on Tuesday, April 10 from 3 pm to 8 pm at Stygar Florissant Chapel and Cremation Center, 13980 New Halls Ferry Road, Florissant, MO 63033
Funeral service will be held at Stygars on Wednesday, April 11 starting promptly at 10 am followed by interment at Friedens Cemetery & Mausoleum. Obituary

Gary Rowbverry had his hip replacement surgery on Monday (Jan. 8) in Houston as scheduled. By Tuesday afternoon he was back at his apartment. Gary said as soon as he woke up after surgery he was no longer hurting. He says he feels great and hopes to be back to work in a couple of weeks. Typical recovery time is 6 to 8 weeks but he’s hoping the doctor will clear him to return to work since, as we know, he really doesn’t do anything.
Row says he was really crabby, which he attributes to his bad hip, and also always tired which he attributes to his bad heart. Now that he’s taken care of those two issues he feels like a new man. He said, “the Crabby Row is gone!” And he has a lot more energy than he did have. Anyone wanting to call him and test his crabbyless attitude, you can reach him at 314-715-5429.
Visitation will be Thursday, December 28th from 4 to 7 pm at Gent Funeral Home in Alto IL. Funeral there Friday at 10 am.
OLur thoughts and prayers go out to Joni and her family.
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.
