A fitting tribute to The Mayor. I haven't been on for a few days, and just now saw this (and the list you posted of GTers we've lost over the last year), and am just dumbfounded. I never met Okie in person, just through the OAF, but I saw enough of his posts to tell the world is in much worse shape without him here.

Very sorry to hear this news. In my time here I've never seen him pen a bad word about anybody. One of the greats.


RIP

Never met the mayor, but for years I always opened any post started by or replied to by him. Always enjoyed his input, and I miss him as though I knew him. Bye Okie, keep an eye on us from up there.

Just reading this now. I'm shocked. What a loss to the GT community. I will certainly miss his presence.

RIP, Okie.

I was stunned when I heard the news. I always enjoyed talking to him here and reading what he had to say.

Scott, thank you so much for the leg work you're doing on this.

I would like to say to any of Marks family that may read this, he was a very special man to many of us, as you can plainly see. Not many people touch as many lives as he has. I hope some of you find comfort in knowing how much Mark was loved.

My thoughts-

I always loved reading any new posting titled "Hey Okie!" It was common and always worth opening up to see the contents.

- We spoke on the phone once on our birthday and talked liked best friends for over an hour. I remember hanging up feeling better about myself and glad to know him.

- I remember him talking about his 1911 pistol often.

- Numerous postings of his job at the salt mine. Lots of stories told from there.

- I remember him being declared "The Mayor of GT". He accepted gracefully.

Such an awesome person and it is indeed not fair to lose a good one too soon. Such a kind and gentle man.
