CryptoHealth News: Gimlin and Godwin

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 28th, 2006

Bob Gimlin had open-heart surgery the morning of June 28, 2006, in his hometown of Yakima, Washington. He is reportedly doing well. Of course, Bob is well-known as the "Gimlin" portion of the Patterson-Gimlin footage taken of a Bigfoot at Bluff Creek, California, on October 20, 1967.

Meanwhile, weird fiction aficionado and managing editor of Fate Magazine, David F. Godwin suffered a heart attack on June 20. He was supposed to come home on June 23, 2006.

Any updates are appreciated on these and other individuals on the quest having health issues.

About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.

    hey everyone hope bob gimlin does a wonderful recovery from his surgery. thanks bill green

  5. Judy Green responds:

    Best wishes to Bob for a speedy recovery. Having met him at the Bellingham conference last year, I have no doubt that he is quite sincere in what he saw and what he believes it was on that fateful day.

  6. Ken Gerhard responds:

    All of our thoughts are with Bob. He is definitely one of the kindest and most approachable guys that I have had the pleasure of meeting. He is also a very tough dude, having undergone many surgeries after being thrown from horses on different occasions.

  7. wildphotographer responds:

    I spoke to Bob at his home in Yakima on the 27th. He indicated that he had just had open heart surgery, but he was at home when I spoke to him. Either way, this guy seems tough as nails. Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery, Bob.

  8. Lee Pierce responds:

    My best to both gentlemen.

  9. HUGH GIMLIN responds:

    I AM BOB GIMLINS SON.

    AS LONG AS MY FATHER HAS SPOKE ABOUT HIM & ROGER’S ADVENTURES THEY WERE ALWAYS TOLD TO ME AS REALITY. MY DAD STRONGLY BELIEVES WHAT THEY SAW.

    I SPOKE WITH HIM BY PHONE JUST LAST NIGHT, HE SAID HE WAS FEELING GOOD, AND WARNED ME ABOUT MY HEALTH. HE SOUNDS HEALTHIER THAN ME.

    SO FOR NOW YOU CAN ALL REST ASSURED THAT HE’S DOING GOOD.
