    And I haven't confirmed. There is a message on Okie's FB that says he's gone.

    :crying:

    "Rest in Peace Mark. The Brain tumor was a bit more aggressive than we thought. If any one know more details or has any good memories, Then now is a good time to post them. I am a cousin in Cali."

    I checked this out as best I could. The person who posted this seems credible and is most definitely family.

    Well if this is confirmed, it's confirmation only the good die young.

    Salute, Okie.

    Same. Brain tumor sure fits what we know, though.

    My God. I dont want it to be true, but I cant see anyone making it up. Okie was always a bright spot here on GT, always positive, never negative to anyone. What a great man. A true gentle giant that loved people and wasnt afraid to show it.

    In the words of our big old buddy "What a great big ol' crap sammich my friend."
