My good friend Marion, known as Parker to everyone on the blog, passed away on Thursday.
We spent a lot of hours in the Wichita Mountains of southwest Oklahoma hiking and talking and learning from each other.
His wife Charlotte wanted me to let everyone know that he passed away. He had been suffering from ALS and it finally got the best of him.
He will truly be missed as a friend, a hiking partner, a historian and a great story teller.
Farewell my friend.
