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

i've unfortunately had to seperate myself from paintball throughout this 2008 season....but let me say, we have lost a true, valued friend in tyson. he may have owned sly and all that....but i'm talking beyond that, tyson was a TRUE individual. i played with him through the ages when it was still cool to show up at 7 am at sc village and play street ball....and spend 4 hours after playing paintball at the lucky greek talking about nothing....or hanging out at the sly booth, even though due to sponsorship agreements we werent supposed too and putting down some of the realest talk with the realest person.............i'm still in shock....but tyson, we loved you.

God Tyson, I wish you just knew how much all of us loved and appreciated you.

You were one of the finest individuals I ever had the pleasure of meeting. As a man, a mentor, and a friend, I wish you nothing but the best in the afterlife and beyond.

More than anything, we all want you back. We went to the Shout House tonight, a place you shared with us, and we all drank one for you. We listened to Journey's "Small Town Girl", and just remembered the impact that you had on our lives and personalities. All of us. From every company, denomination, and being. You will never be forgotten.

God, I just wish we could be around to experience you again. You will never understand how impactful your existence was.

RIP Tyson--my brother, my friend, my confidant, my roommate. Your soul and impact will never be forgotten.

Live Free, Die Free mother****er--you got the last laugh, and may we drink one in heaven.
Gone, but never forgotten.

It's too bad Ty wasn't there to enjoy it with you guys. I didn't know him, but I do know that he did great things and had a vision for what paintball should be. The game has lost several greats in the past couple of years.

Don't let his memory die.

It is definitely a sad day in Paintball when one of the good guys goes away. We were fortunate to have Tyson and SLY as one of our semi pro team sponsors in 2007. He was definitely one of a kind and the sport will not be the same without him.
RIP my friend.

I knew Tyson just a little bit, but he was totally a great guy. I am deeply saddened by this news. He was far too young.

I never knew this Tyson, but it's always sad when such a young person passes. Anyone know the circumstances of his death? I hope it isn't something horrible like an overdose. Thats what seems plausible to me seeing as he died in his sleep.. which is something that isn't normal at all.
