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.

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.
