So sorry to hear of Okie passing. I worked with him for many years at Graves Truck Line/ ANR Freight . Okie was just OKIE and was involved in the operations and he normally had the last word. I also was fortunate to work with his wife there for many years as well. Okie had a big heart and really would do anything for anyone. He was a family man and I could see that they all were important in his life. Someday we all can be reunited and talk about all those days gone by.
