Such sad, sad news. I am terribly sorry to hear of this.

Okie was one of the nicest people I have ever seen online, a funny, and kind man. He will truly be missed by all.

RIP Mr. Mayor

I really hate to hear this! Okie was a real Stand up guy and never had a bad thing to say about anyone. It breaks my heart to hear that he is gone. What a huge loss to this forum and all that had the pleasure of knowing him. RIP Okie!

I met Mark for a friendly shooting session in Collinsville OK several years ago with some other board members. I found him to be exactly what I had experienced online in our interactions on GT -- just a real person with no pretensions about being anyone other than himself.

RIP, Mark and condolences to the family.

Thanks Okie,
For the kind words to others, the good humor demonstrated, and for being the friendly Mayor every place needs. May we all try to follow your example.

I'm almost at a loss for words, but Okie was the kindest Internet guy I have ever "met". He always referred to me as "my friend".

I never met him, but he set a standard on how we all should treat each other here on a daily basis. I will miss him dearly. He was my favorite GT member.

I am very sad.

I met Mark twice. He was a good cat. That's for sure.

I see Eric renamed GNG. Cool move, BGH.

Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Okie in person, we shared several funny stories and had lots of laughs. I am sitting here at my computer right now in disbelief and sadness. He called me (and lots of others) "his friend". I will certainly miss you, Okie. RIP my friend.

As soon as I saw that GNG was changed to The Okie Corral, I knew, then I saw the description and my heart sank.

Okie was the one person that should have lived forever.

It's funny how I can care so much about all of you and you're just strangers to me. I've never met any of you, but here I am, all upset, again, for losing another.

I can't believe the sadness I feel for someone I never met in person. He was a great man and will be missed in big ways here on Glock Talk.

Rest in Peace

Rest in piece. I didn't "know" Okie except from these forums, but still feels like losing a friend.

A true measure of a person is whether you are a better person from knowing them. I think it is safe to say that GT is a better place from knowing Mark.

RIP Sir.

Yep. And if I remember correctly, times got tough and he sold it and bought a Range Officer.
