Lost A True Baller Today

Today Travis "Big Cat" Tappa was killed in a work accident at age 21.
http://www.todaystmj4.com/news/local/14205547.html

People that play at stinger or siege probably would recognize or know Tappa

It was sum years ago when he invited me to play woodsball with him and a group of guys one day. I played on and off every now and then. Then at Ambush Alley there was a XSV clinic and Tappa invited me onto EZ Money the team that he made. He then played on and off till this summer, when we would go to stinger on Thursday nights and Sundays for practice every week, and hit up Texas Road House after for lunch or dinner. These are the times I will miss most, cause for those of you who know when you go out to eat with Tappa you always have a good time. He also backed the UWP paintball team in there victory at the last NCPA tourney at stinger. Recently he had to stop playing cause of tears in his Achilles tendons on both ankles, but was looking to make a come back this spring. For those that knew him off the field are even luckier, he always stood up for his friends and truly lived life to the fullest. Thanks for the good times. This is a shout out to the guy that gave me a chance in paintball, to my friend, mentor, and paintball brother RIP.

Also my condolences go out to his Parents, family, Dan K his best friend, Randi his girlfriend, and anyone that knew him.

Thats horrible, my prayers are with him and his family.

I remember playing with Travis when EZ Money was at Ambush Alley and I just made it on to team Envy and we all went to the Nicky Cuba and Mapp Chimm clinic there.

Just saw him at Stinger a few weekends ago at the tournament.

I only talked to Travis a few times, but in those few hours I have to say he was a great guy that loved to have fun and enjoyed making others laugh and giving others a great time. His generosity and willingness to help others was amazing. I was really looking forward to seening him again, unfortuantly it will no longer be possible here, but some day I hope to see him again in a better place.

RIP Tappa, you will be remembered.
