Tommy Smith Dead at 46

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

 

Five Brave Gluttons

Barry and his daughter Danielle, Kurt, Murph and Danny ‘YumYum’ Halverson all got their heads shaved to help raise money for childhood cancer research as part of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation’s drive at Show Me’s on Sunday.  They raised over $3,000 in their effort.  You can still donate to the cause at the link above.  We’re very proud of these guys!

Gary Rowberry sails thru hip replacement

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.
