Default what ever happened to Eiji Fuller

Does anyone know what ever happened to Eiji Fuller? I have not seen his posts in years and I am sure it was not due to lack of talent.

I just looked him up on Facebook and it appears he's still in business in the San Diego area. I wrote a message asking him to stop by, but I don't know what I'm doing on FB, so let's hope it got there.

I asked about Eiji here, a year or so back. I think Potosan said he had some contact with him. Undoubtably, Eiji was the best woodworker to have graced Talkfestool not just talented, but smart in his approach.
I would look him up on Facebook, but I'll never have an account for that place

I was friends with Eiji on FB, but his account is deactivated. I haven't seen or heard from him in years. He sold his woodworking business, sold all his wood and tools, and fell off the map, as far as I could tell. I do miss his woodworking posts - he had skillz!

His Fullerbuilt facebook page hasn't changed since 2012.

Read his last post (November 2, 2011):

"Fullerbuilt is closing its doors this month. Thank you so much for your support. It is with hope that I turn this page."

Is Elji related to Paul Fuller who just won the Festool Video Contest?

I would say the odds are against it, since Eiji is Asian and Paul is not. Not impossible though.
