Ed Bas is no old-timer, but at 48 years, I guess he isn't a kid either. Still, he has always tried to stay fit. Ed's a runner, an avid golfer who would rather pull a cart than ride in one, and a man who didn't indulge in debilitating vices, like smoking or excessive eating. You can't really tell from his picture on this page but he isn't carrying excess pounds.
Ed should have had another 20 years at least before old-guy problems caught up to him. Instead, he is now recovering from a serious stroke that he suffered in late June. His condition is much improved, and not life-threatening, but he has a ways to go before he has recovered completely.
