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

    :crying:

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

    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."
