I am sad to announce that Ted Lammert of Feather Craft as passed away. Ted has been a staple in the St. Louis Fly Fishing Community for decades by running one of the finniest Fly fishing shops around. Whenever I stepped through his door I was greeted with a smile or a recent story of fishing or an outing with his grand kids. . Feather Craft under the guide of Ted always provided great service and helped introduce Fly Fishing to many new generations. Feather Craft also brought us customer appreciation days where customers could get discounts on fly fishing gear. Thanks to Ted every Fly fisher has a place to call home.
Ted Lammert, Frederic Leland Thompson Wednesday, June 11, 2014. Ted was the beloved husband of Anna Sis for six years; loving step-father of Caleb (Lesley), Mike, Sara (Steve) and Amy; dear brother of Dick (Maitland), Bartow (Brian), Martin (Karen) and Pollie (Mike); and his five grandchildren – Averie, Lilah, Cynthia, Ethan and Steven. Ted’s life adventure began in Saint Louis on March 17, 1964. He was the son of Martin Lammert IV and Alice Cornelia Thompson Lammert. Ted worked for many years at The Lammert Furniture Company and in recent years for a fly fishing company. . His priority was his wife, Sis, and his family. Ted loved to travel, fish, hunt, cook gourmet meals, entertain and recently was trying to train his two unruly black Labrador puppies (The Girls). All will remember him as a fun loving, generous man; a great hugger who often had a trick up his sleeve. More importantly, he was one you could always depend on. He loved life and encouraged all around him to do the same.
