I got an email from Jim Cady giving me the information on Matthias.

He wrote:

Mattie was a colorful roanoke charactor, a genuinely nice guy. Lots of people would know him by his first name or description only. Recently He helped to do the Machinist work on the brass pole legs for the table at station #1. Because of that, I thought it might make a good post for your blog.

If anyone has anything to add please let me know.

I knew Matty 2o years ago in Manhattan, before we moved into opposite parts of America.
He was a wonderful guy, not at all like his tough guy look.
Though we weren't much in touch we had a connection in the heart. I will miss you..Even gone he will always be 'Living Now'.
