EAGLE PARK SLIM WAS A LOCAL BLUES LEGEND WHO CAME TO LANE COUNTY IN THE 1980'S. HE WAS A CHARISMATIC MAN WHO OFTEN WORE A SMILE AND A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR.
HE LIVED HIS LIFE AND LOVED TO ENTERTAIN OTHERS WITH HIS GIFT OF MUSIC.


HE PASSED AWAY PEACEFULLY TODAY IN HIS HOME IN DOWNTOWN EUGENE AT THE AGE OF 74.
UNFORTUNATELY, HE DID NOT HAVE INSURANCE AND MY MOTHER GWEN JOHNSON WHO HAS NOT ONLY BEEN HIS CAREGIVER BUT, HIS PARTNER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ARRANGEMENTS.

WE ARE ASKING THE COMMUNITY TO PLEASE COME TOGETHER TO HELP US HONOR THIS GREAT MAN WITH A PROPER BURIAL.
~ANYTHING HELPS AND WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE~

Today I heard the service was great. I could not make it in account I am 7 months pregnant and unable to travel. I say to all of you THANK YOU! 7K paid for a very simple funeral and I must say I encourage everyone to live your family members and be prepared. Though Slim had so many who loved him many of us will be lucky to have a quarter of the love that has been shown for him. Final expenses are not cheap and honestly Lord knows what would have happened without each and every one of you. I say love, care and prepare.

Many said my last post was unclear. We have to wait until the funeral home opens so we see if they will take the money we have to proceed. I will let everyone know soon. I know this is a mess so I appreciate everyone's patience.

Bettina, speaking for myself but I'm sure many others feel the same way. Do what needs to be done with the money to help with Slim's final expenses. Its not unexpected the funeral home would want to get paid at this point.

I live in Richmond, CA now and am disabled, so I'll only be there in spirit, Batina. But Slim's beautiful voice will be resonating in my heart! Praying for a send off worthy of him!!

So sorry to hear this news, but glad he died peacefully. What a sweet man. It's been over 15 years since I lived in Eugene, and I'm on the other coast now, but I was honestly just thinking about him not more than a few days ago, and often have thought of him and his gentle, beautiful music and soul over the years. I have his CD and treasure it. I will donate soon when I can, and please accept my condolences to you and to his mom and all who loved him.
