I'm sorry to share this

And I haven't confirmed. There is a message on Okie's FB that says he's gone.



"Rest in Peace Mark. The Brain tumor was a bit more aggressive than we thought. If any one know more details or has any good memories, Then now is a good time to post them. I am a cousin in Cali."

I checked this out as best I could. The person who posted this seems credible and is most definitely family.

Damn, just damn.


Still hoping it's not true, but I'm afraid it is.


ETA: Now I'm seeing several confirming posts from his RL friends and family.

Same. Brain tumor sure fits what we know, though.

My God. I dont want it to be true, but I cant see anyone making it up. Okie was always a bright spot here on GT, always positive, never negative to anyone. What a great man. A true gentle giant that loved people and wasnt afraid to show it.

In the words of our big old buddy "What a great big ol' crap sammich my friend."

Okie was one in a million, I've been on quite a few message boards and haven't come across or ever plan to come across anyone like Okie ever again. It's all text and electrons, but after being around and reading his post, you knew without a doubt, he had a good heart. I'll miss him a lot.

He didn't post great revelations, he wasn't a genious, he didn't make a lot of money or change the world. He just had a kind heart, and it showed in his posts. He had a kind and encouraging word for everyone.
