Through his Twitter account, a representative for Terry Funk provided an update on the legend's health status.
Following Don Muraco saying on his podcast that Funk is in an assisted living facility for those dealing with dementia, PWInsider confirmed and said Funk "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."
After word got around and tributes on Twitter began to increase, several people noted that Funk might not be as bad as the news initially indicated.
Funk's Twitter account gave their own update in the afternoon:
"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! FOREVER!"
The 77-year-old just celebrated a birthday and survived a bout with COVID-19 this past spring.
