Sam Mattes  (59)

Son of Slovak Samuel Mattes (d. 2006)& Arline Lucille Mattes (d. 2000)

Brother to Judy

Father of Heather, Jeff and Josh

Sam was also a Grandfather.

Sam could talk about gardening forever. He could talk like that about a lot of stuff, because he had so many periods during his life where he would be intensely interested in one subject. He has been consumed by fields such as science fiction, astronomy, physics, music, Taoism and eastern philosophy, antique furniture, UFO's and the paranormal, fishing, model-building, gardening, drag-racing, playing chess, painting, baseball card collecting, playing billiards, poetry and writing, woodworking, and even computer programming. In the course of his life he's been a chemical engineer in a paint factory, a manager at Firestone, a cab driver, a desktop publisher, a maker of doll-house furniture, a published poet, and an ebay seller. And he was really good at all of it!

Sam was a computer GURU. He was a Graphic Designer and loved to build Scripts to be used with mIRC on IRC. If you wanted to know anything about computers or programs you asked Sam. For those that are familiar with IRC, you know Dalnet. I became friends with Sam around 1996 when it was still WAVs, not mp3s. Sam had a country music channel. His nick was NightWynd.

Sam had a cold he couldn't seem to get over, so reluctantly he went to the Dr. He never came back home. He was put in the hospital that day and died a week later.

We still can't believe you're gone Sam. Your passing was so sudden and such a shock to ALL of your IRC friends ~~ We miss you ~~ Des, Deb, Wally, Marsha, Harv, Paul, Eileen and MANY others.

Sam, wish you were with us on Facebook, you would love it.
