Default Whatever happened to Lewis Matkin?

He shows up as the go-to guy for parts numbers in 2012 and before. Is he still around? Has anyone heard from him offline?

I highly doubt that Lewis was banned! Ever since the site changed 2 years ago Lewis just faded away.

I've corresponded with Lewis a few times over the years too. His email address is (or at least used to be) lmatkin@tampabay.rr.com. I tried emailing to him a month or two ago and got no response. A Google search shows:

Lewis E Matkin
33089 Ranch Rd, Dade City, FL 33523

I haven't tried writing to him via snail mail. Hopefully he hasn't passed away like poor Sam Roe.

I'm an old timer in the 6066 group (2002) and I haven't been that active in the last couple of years. The membership list in 2003 was 56 people. Over the years our participation level can change for various reasons, especially as we age. I'm now back- even though it's at a reduced level, so when the question came up on Lewis I was naturally interested and concerned. He was a very knowledgable gentleman, a reliable source and a real asset to the group. I've still kept data/info he provided to us years ago.
I did an internet search using Ed's info and found that Lewis Ellis Matkin Jr., if I'm reading his Facebook page correctly-- was the Pastor of a very small Church, Fort Dade Baptist Church in Dade City, Florida in 2014. He is the same guy that is also a NAPA/GPC parts professional reflected on Linkedin. He just got married, probably in his mid to late fifties- about 2 years ago so maybe being a newly wed, preaching and working at NAPA restricted his time a little. I did not try to contact him via Facebook or otherwise but I certainly wish him well.
Cheers!

Good to hear from you again, Claude! You're another member I think about occasionally, hoping you were still OK. It is strange how a member can be so active in posting for years, then drops out and we never hear from him again. I can think of several who fall into that category.
