Anyone heard from xfozzboute lately

Have missed the works from a talented 3D artist whose handle was or is XFOZZBOUTE. Has he been posting lately, under a new name, or has anyone heard from him lately?

XFozzboute stopped posting a couple of years ago. I haven't seen him on any site, nor on Facebook in years. I'm afraid he may be gone. The last thing I saw him put up was on Alt-Trek two years ago.
Honestly, I hope he is okay. I miss him.
Normally, I'd say that no news is good news, but in the case of a cancer survivor, now I'm worried too. He's not the only one who's disappeared. I was wondering what happened to Evil_Genuis_180 a while back (he's back, obviously), and MadeinJapan1988 along with all of his stuff disappeared a while back with practically no warning.
Hopefully, it's just a combination of life and burnout, although I get not liking the fact that we seem to have no way of getting in touch with him to find out.
I've added memorial badges to the profiles I've been able to verify myself, but I'm a little reluctant to make a comprehensive list for privacy reasons.

Just a few posts after the latest birthday-wishes, I saw a post from 8 February 2021, by a friend of his called Tim Crane.
"For those of you that don't know, my dear friend, songwriter, and Shaman extraordinaire has passed away. Rob was one of a kind and will be sorely missed."
I don't do Facebook, so thank you for posting this. While it's sad news, it's still important to know what happened to our friend Xfozzboute, AKA Rob Wilson. I was afraid this was the case, as it was never like him to simply vanish for a large amount of time from the CGI community. Even when he was battling cancer years ago, he still posted updates on that and his work. I agree that he was one of a kind and will definitely be missed.
