Man I'm still trying to wrap my head around this...

I hadn't seen where he posted it was a tumor... I knew he said he fell a couple times at work, and they ordered tests... and never heard anything else.

This has been a really rough year for GT... Jack, Skidoo, SilentRunner, CJ, and now okie... and I think I missed a few in that list (no disrespect, those are just the ones I remember right off the top of my head)...

Be thinking of you okie...

Yeppir. He really tore up that seafood buffet, didn't he? I have a pic to post of us in the parking lot in front of that case of Spam he gave me.
Freakin' Jim Bianchi makes Okie look like Peter Dinklage in that photo. IIRC, it was you, me, Jim, John (Bates Motel), Tony, and Mark in that pic. I'll have to find it. Now I can post (with Mark's blessing) a never before seen candid shot of the Okster OUT OF UNIFORM!(No camo)

Perhaps, some of us here should do a buffet in honor. You, Jim, me and Tony if he's in town. What say you?

When we had a thread for 2013 New Year's Resolutions, mine was to be more like Okie. No matter what it was, always supportive and kind. I've never seen a negative word from him.

He may not have liked everyone here but I think he had love in his heart for all of us. He was truly one of a kind.

And thanks for the fitting tribute, Eric.

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.
