Terry Funk not doing well.
On a recent episode of his podcast, Don Muraco revealed that Terry Funk is suffering from dementia. Muraco said that Funk is living in an assisted living facility for those dealing with dementia.
Mike Johnson at PWInsider confirmed Muraco's comments, reporting, "Terry has been dealing with issues for some time that have gotten progressively worse over the last year in the wake of the passing of his wife Vickie."
Funk's wife Vickie passed away in March 2019.
The official Twitter account for Funk posted the following statement:
Yes, Mr. Funk is currently receiving residential care for his multiple health issues, which do affect his mind as well as the rest of his body. As you can imagine, some days are better than others. He & his family appreciate all of your kind words!— Terry Funk (@TheDirtyFunker) July 6, 2021
Funk reportedly tested positive for COVID earlier this year. In February, Dustin Rhodes asked fans to pray for Funk, saying the hardcore legend was in a lot of pain. PWInsider noted at the time that the pain came from a hip issue and overall damage that was put on his body through the years.
Fightful will continue to monitor the condition of Funk and wish him the best.
