I am better off for having known Okie here. He will be missed. Eric thanks for naming this lounge in his honor.

Although I never had the pleasure to meet Okie in real life, he has definitely had an impact on my life for sure. The way he treated people was always genuine and his love for 1911s and dodge trucks was always a good topic of jest between us all. Life is short, for some, the best even, too short.

You are missed my friend.

I do not like this one bit. In memory of Okie, tonight I feast on tacos and go buy a Ruger like his.

This is very sad. While I didn't know him on a personal level, I did see his posts. He was a very popular guy here and I can't help but feel that he went too soon. Prayers to his family.

Words cannot describe what I am feeling as I read the posts above. I am shocked to hear of Mark's passing. May he RIP. Prayers and thought go to his family , friends and to each and every one of his friends on these forums. May God bless you and keep you, Mr. Mayor. tom.

I am very sorry for his friends and family. Losing someone you love is very, very difficult.

This is really sad news. Okie was one of the posters that I liked on this forum. Never a harsh word or criticism of anyone. Prayers sent to the family.

RIP Mr. Mayor

Pretty hard for me to soak this in. Still don't believe it. Of all the people. You will be missed by many our friend.

Damn dude.
I am ashamed to say that I'm kinda pissed at you for leaving us. Doesn't make much sense. You were supposed to stick around for years and keep us entertained, and show us how to be better people. I am angry and sad. Angry that you had to leave us, when there is so much that you still were supposed to do. And sad that a little part of GT is gone.

RIP Okie.....you made a difference.

RIP Mayor Okie.

I agree this place lost a cornerstone and a friend.
What a gentle giant.
Going to the 'salt mine' was always a favorite line of his that I liked.
Okie kept it real.

I never thought I would shed tears for somebody I met in a forum, never in person. We've lost somebody special. RIP buddy.
