Fred Evans

Fred has suffered a stroke rendering him limited motion of his left side. He is now recuperating, receiving physical therapy, & wooing the female staff with his unmitigable charm at:

Avamere Three Fountains
835 Crater Lake Ave.
Medford, Or 97504
Room 14A

He does not have access to a computer at this time, but hearing from his many friends on the Spey Pages would go a long way towards raising his spirits.

Fred

JD thanks for this information although it is pretty darned sad. Going to have to get out the pen and paper and actually write something! Fred posted a lot on this forum and enough that you sort of figure out what kind of guy he is which I have determined with you that he's a good fellow.
Thanks for posting the address

I think Fred is in another room instead of 12A, but JD will update that soon. Don't stop writing though - the letters will get to Fred one way or another.

JD and I were just over to see the ol' trout, and he's doing rather well. He can move his left arm and leg better than on my last visit, so that's encouraging. Still not known how long he'll be an inmate, as all afflicted patients are different in their recovery times.

He's known pretty well by all the nursing staff as someone to always keep an eye on, especially staying away from his good hand. That Fred will never miss an opportunity to show his appreciation, if you know what I mean!!!

Yeah, he's getting better!!!!!

Sorry to hear, give him my best and hope for a speedy recovery. I have enjoyed Fred's posts on here as well as other fishing sites and conversing with him through messages. I miss Reading his posts and insight as well as humor. Good to hear that you all are checking up on him.

All the best to Fred and his family. I'm sure I speak for all of us here at the SP community in wishing him a swift and complete recovery. Miss hearing Fred chime in.

If Fred's daughter ever sends the key to his house, JD and I can get in and grab his laptop so he can respond to all the kind gestures and wishes you all have been sending.

I suggested to JD that we could just go around to the back of his house and find a window not closed all the way, sneak in, grab the booty, then cut and run. JD said as many criminals that have visited Fred's place recently, we'd probably get our asses thrown in the big house! Plan 1 abandoned!

I just dropped off a bunch of The Drake for Fred to read, but again forgot to look at his room number. Knucklehead! Still, take a minute to write him a note - he'd be thrilled to get it!
