The Okeene Diamondback Club would like to express our deepest sympathy on the passing of one of our own, Tony Felder. Tony passed away on September 12th 2016.
Tony was a huge contributor to our rattlesnake festival for numerous years and we will forever be grateful for that. We will be organizing a benefit dinner on October 2nd 2016 at the Okeene School Cafeteria to help towards the family's medical cost.
For now, you can contribute towards his medical cost at Tony's Go Fund Me page:
