It's a shame he wasn't on his (presumably) favorite board in his final days. It's terrible how fast these things can happen.

I was just reading some PM's from him the other day myself. I may be one of the few GT'ers he didn't always call 'my friend'. Sometimes he'd call me 'sweetheart'.

I considered him a real friend. We hung out once here in Vegas for Ma and Pa's wedding. He was a great guy I will miss forever.

Sorry for the typos. Hard to type on aphone when u are crying.

I just visited his FB page because today (July 8) is his birthday and saw the postings. He was an awesome person and will be missed.

I am very saddened by this news. My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Mark on one of our trips west. He came to the RV park where we had put in for a couple of days. We spent the better part of an afternoon sitting in our coach getting to know each other. We then jumped into his Dodge and went out to dinner at a restaurant named (of all things) Okie's Steakhouse and Saloon. What a great guy! Mark treated everybody well, even some people who probably didn't deserve it.

I'll miss him!

Still hoping it's not true, but I'm afraid it is.
Now I'm seeing several confirming posts from his RL friends and family.

Reading that post brings tears to my eyes, Okie was such a great man. To see some others mentioned there that we have lost is sad also. I think I will make a donation to the NRA in Okies name for sure. If you get details on services please share, my family would like to send an arrangement.

This news has literally crushed me. I am at a loss for words and feel an emptiness for a person I never met yet feel in some small way that I knew. Okie, I will miss you. I love you, my friend.

SOB me, I had a feeling this sort of thing was afoot, and was even digging about on FB last night trying to find any clues.

I don't know whether to keep crying or blow my nose, have another shot of Irish or throw the fflark up, or what. No place around here to go sit and just scream - w/o being picked up as an EDP and arrested into a rubber room....... so I took one of my few remaining valium and am hoping for sleep. Yeah, right. Just.Flarking.Right. not.

I FB msg'd Kurt earlier - I am fearful he may spin a bearing or two over this........ which brings back the Loss of Linda, and which make me thing of SR, and CJ, and Grimlet (CT).

WHAT THE F&^$K is with the cancers and the heart attacks and the GD brain tumours 2012/13??????????

DAMN IT!!!!!!!!!!!
