The “voice” of Lindbergh High School has sadly gone quiet. On the morning of Jan. 4, LHS athletic office assistant Mike Stammer passed away from a heart attack. Mike’s familiar and friendly voice could be heard each morning during the school announcements, and he also announced many high school sporting events such as basketball. In addition, he kept score and ran the general operations for hundreds of athletic events at night and on weekends. Mike worked at LHS since 1978 and made sure games ran smoothly year round, benefiting thousands of students who have participated in high school sports over the years.
“Our entire staff will miss Mike and his love for Lindbergh,” said LHS Principal Dr. Ron Helms.
Always a dependable employee, Mike also took on an endless list of other duties such as compiling information for the high school graduation program each year and putting together newsletters.
Visitation will be held on Friday, Jan. 6, from 4-8 p.m. at Kutis, Affton Chapel. A small funeral service will be held at Kutis on Saturday, Jan. 7, at 9:30 a.m., followed by interment at Sunset Cemetery. Please keep Mike’s wife, Susan, and his daughter, Alexandra (LHS class of 2012). in your thoughts and prayers.
In lieu of flowers, Stammer’s family has asked that donations be made to the Coach Stan Mach Memorial Scholarship fund (Mach was a former Lindbergh football coach). Envelopes will be available at the visitation, or you can donate online or contact the Lindbergh Schools Foundation at 314-729-2400, ext. 8831.
