Just from the pics you can tell he was a hella nice guy. I have never met him or even seen a post by him to my recollection, but he seems like a great guy. WAY too young to leave us.

Here's to you, my new freind. Where ever you go...we will be thinking of you. I will light a candle for him when I get home tonight.

To be quite honest I am glad he didnt recover from the stroke because I work for an insurance companie and most people who have strokes and recover and live end up becomming really fucked up...

Cant use their bodies correctly, some people recover just fine. The way he lived his life he would of had it no other way. We always talked about how we would die and how we would want to go and Fredo wanted to die in his car...

Sad thing is he got his wish waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to godamn early in his life.

More than 730,000 Americans suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year. In fact, someone suffers a stroke every forty-five seconds, making stroke a leading cause of adult disability - as well as the third leading cause of death nationwide.

Despite its toll on society, public awareness of stroke continues to be limited. For example, a recent survey revealed:

40% of the public does not know that a stroke occurs in the brain.
More than 70% of seniors can't fully identify the warning signs of a stroke.
Two-thirds were unaware of the short timeframe in which a person must seek treatment.

But according to experts, a stroke should be treated with the same urgency as a heart attack. Every second is critical to patient care, survival and subsequent quality of life.

To help deliver prompt quality care, the medical team may consist of:

Emergency physicians
Emergency nurses
Neurologists
Neurosurgeons
Medical technicians

Northern Nevada Rehabilitation Services
Rehabilitation Services and Northern Nevada Medical Center offer expanded facilities and the latest stroke treatments available. Included among our treatment methods is thrombolytic therapy, which greatly benefits patients if administered within 3 hours of a stroke.

How much do you know about strokes?
Stroke is the third-leading cause of death for Americans. But surprisingly, the public's knowledge concerning strokes is extremely limited. Education information can help you better understand what a stroke is, how to identify the warning signs of stroke and how to lower your risk of having one.

First, understand what a stroke is.
A stroke, sometimes referred to as a cerebral vascular accident (CVA), is an interruption in the flow of blood to cells in the brain; deprived of oxygen from the blood, the cells die. A stroke occurs when (1) a blockage of an artery prevents blood from reaching cells in the brain, or (2) an artery ruptures inside or outside the brain, causing hemorrhage. Stroke is also referred to as a "brain attack."

When a stroke occurs, every second is critical. Immediate medical treatment can lower disability substantially.

There are two types of strokes:

Ischemic strokes caused by build-ups of fatty deposits on the inside of an artery wall which then becomes completely clogged. Ischemic strokes are the more common, accounting for eighty percent of all strokes suffered.

Hemorrhagic strokes occur through the rupture of either an artery inside the brain or an aneurysm (a blood-filled bulge in the artery wall) at the base of the brain. Twenty percent of all strokes suffered are hemorrhagic strokes.

Second, be sure you know the warning signs of stroke.

Numbness, weakness, or paralysis in face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body.
Sudden blurred or decreased vision in one or both eyes.
Difficulty speaking or understanding simple statements.
Loss of balance or coordination when combined with another sign.

Third, learn how to reduce your risk of stroke.

Control your blood pressure.
Find out if you have heart disease - especially an irregular heartbeat known as atrial fibrillation (AF).
Find out if you have carotid artery disease.
Find out if you have diabetes.
Don't smoke.
Lower your cholesterol.
Limit your alcohol use.
Control your weight.

And finally, if a stroke does occur, seek immediate medical treatment!
Strokes kill. Strokes disable. A stroke should be viewed as a medical emergency, every bit as urgent as a heart attack. If you experience any signs of a stroke, call 911 immediately.

Skilled care, close by.
Northern Nevada Rehabilitation Services is conveniently located at Northern Nevada Medical Center.

Truly depressing, especially in the middle of the hollidays. At least I can say I got to be part of his last CSi run. I still have the video of that run.

Fredo, even though I only met you a couple times, I will agree with everyone elso on here who met you: you were a smiling ass guy and were friendly to everyone. The world was a better place with you and you will be missed.

I didn't know him personally, but I remember him moving from SoCal to Vegas and he had that picture of him and his car as his avatar, a true CSi member.

Sorry to hear that. It sucks that this stuff can happen even to young people like us. One of my old neighbors back when I was young had a stoke last Febuary, but she was "lucky", losing some control in the left limb and requiring a cane to walk.

I'm really upset to hear this. Wilfredo was one of the older-school members. That was way too young to go.

Just another reminder to enjoy life while you can. Any one of us could have gone out like that

That beautiful smile of his will live on. I doubt anyone who was priviliged enough to see it will ever forget it. I know I won't.
May he fly high with the angels.
