St. Louis restaurateur Jim Mattingly is being remembered fondly by friends, family and customers after dying suddenly Sunday morning of an apparent heart attack. Mattingly was 64 years old.
The north county native founded the popular Mattingly's Restaurant in Florissant with his mother in 1971. A second location was later opened in St. Charles.
The public visitation will be held at Hutchens Mortyary on Graham road Wednesday from 1:00-9:00 p.m. A funeral service at North County Community Church Thursday at 10:00 am.
The family is asking that instead of flowers, donations be made in Mattingly's memory to the Greater St. Louis Area Major Case Squad, 700 North 5th Street, Belleville, IL 62220.
