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.

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."

If true, he's sitting down & tearing it up with some former GT'ers.
RIP mayor Mark.
