Gerald Perkins is a Seattle area hospital in a coma.
Gerald has been active in San Francisco Bay Area fandom for many years. He has been a BayCon staffer and panelist. He is a long-time artist and is active in furry fandom. A few years ago he moved to the Seattle area.
If you have any information about how to contact his family members, please contact Glen Wooten at kar120c(at)sbcglobal(dot)net immediately. You can also email Elisa Sheets at elisa(at)mib(dot)org.
Even a first name of a family member or a city of residence would be helpful to narrow down the search.
They have a good lead but still are 2 degrees away from a telephone number etc. If you know anyone who might know something, please feel free to pass the message on.
UPDATE, 1119HRS PDT: The fannish grapevine has succeeded and the executor of Gerry's will has been located. Updates will be posted at http://www.caringbridge.org/ under Gerald Perkins.
