R.I.P Tyson from Sly

For those of you that dont know, Tyson has past away and was found in his room. He went to bed thursday night and never woke up. As of what happened is still undeturmined. I was not really close to him but he did touch my life and we became friends at world cup 07 as i helped him with his booth and spreading the word of his barrel while running around with signs. He was an awesome guy and i loved his attitude. Always cheerful and hilarious. Tyson has touched many lives and has been awesome with everyone. I am not to sure of how he past away and was shocked because he was so young. But i want to send out my love and my care to Don, Gordon, Tysons family and all of those that he has touched. We are also accepting donations towards his funeral and his service so send your love. The contacted for the donations is Randy Bocelli and you can contact him on his cell phone at (760) 403 3939. Randy Bocelli was one of his close friends and they go way back together being on the same team and all. Also supporting each other in the paintball world. [/b]Randy is here to help his family rase money for his services[/b]. We are also looking to do a fund raiser event up at Giant paintball park up in victorville. Not Decided yet but we are looking to do the event and more info on the event Ask Randy Bocelli. Much love bro i know you will be watching over us. Hope you are doing well up there bro and i know you are because you are hilarious.
Much Love White Tyson
Scott A loving friend and a supportor of Sly

Even in death, Tyson still manages to treat you like a VIP.
I've only known Tyson for about 4-5 years, I liked him instantly, he had a charisma and character that just impressed the hell out of me.
After today, while in the presence of all who loved him and learning more of who he was and where he came from.
I walked away realizing that I love him too and inspired by his enrichment of everybody's lives he touched and loved.
I will miss you brotha!

For me, the "ShoutHouse" will always be Tyson's House or the SLY House!

Always a shame when someone who works in Paintball dies, it's a shame when anyone dies though.

RIP Tyson.

You had such an impact on all of us. Words could never express our feelings for you, or what you did for us.

We had one for you tonight. At the Shout House. Everyone. Journey's Small Town Girl went out for last time. None of us will ever stop believing in you, or ourselves.

RIP Tyson. Live free, Die Free.
Gone, but never forgotten.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
