Wally hall said in today’s column

That JFB had dementia for his last 20 years (something like that. I don’t remember the exact wording).

Has anyone else ever heard that?

It’s common knowledge that he had it when he died. However, I didn’t know he suffered from it for his last several years as A.D.

Dementia usually develops slowly and most of us in our 80’s on occasion forget things but serious dementia takes time normally.

I saw that & I don’t think Wally knows what he’s talking about. (As usual). I agree with bob that dementia develops slowly, but I don’t think there was anything wrong with Frank’s sharpness 20 years ago. Maybe by 2007 or 08 he was showing some signs, but I doubt any earlier than that. At least in any appreciable amount.

Here’s what I know:

J Frank Broyles is the father of the modern Razorback brand. And an Arkansas Icon and treasure.

I never heard anything even remotely to do with that.

Leave it to Wally to keep stirring.

I think Wally meant to say he’s been suffering from it for the last 20 years, or so his columns appear that way.

That’s what I took from it also.
