54-year-old Steve Williams, park manager for Oklahoma's Tenkiller State Park, Greenleaf State Park, and Cherokee Landing State Park, unintentionally shot and killed himself at his home last week. His wife reported that he had gone to a back room to clean a gun when she heard a shot. Wilson then came into the living room, collapsed and died.
Because the shooting took place on state property the State Bureau of Investigation is conducting an investigation. But no foul play is suspected.
Wilson was named Oklahoma's Park Manager of the year in 2000. According to reports "his love for hunting and fishing was second only to his love for his family and friends."
He leaves behind his wife of 37 years and two grown children.
