My heart goes out to him and his family. Hell of a fighter through the years. Thank you for the game, Bob. This sport is a release most of us need and would never have without you. Stay fighting, stay strong.

This is sad news. At this time in my life i do not LIVE paintball. It is a hobby I participate in from time to time. Low stress, and high fun. A good excuse to get out of the house, and try an blend in with the masses, and shoot them. After over 20 years playing the game, it is something that is always there.

But at one point in my life paintball was everything. All of my friends were from paintball. MOST of my friends are still from paintball, even though I live across the country from them. Some have given up the sport, others have reached the tip of the iceberg. I have been on the podium with them, and been walked off the field by their guns. We have forged some bond or another over the years, and made some lasting memories that many people may not be able to understand. All because of this obscure game......Thanks Bob. I owe you a lot.

It is with a heavy heart I confirm that Bob Gurnsey lost his battle with cancer this morning. Rest in Peace. We all owe you a debt of gratitude for not only creating the first paintball game but also creating paintball as a business so it could spread and grow.

RIP Bob. I've gained friends, memories, and direction in life because of paintball and I don't know what I would've done if you hadn't helped build paintball into what it is today.

Bob was a great man and his drive and determination made it possible for me to wake up everyday and work in the business i love. Bob will never be forgotten as every player who puts on a mask is a testament to his legacy. RIP Bob as my thoughts are with you and your family.

I don't think it can ever be really known or understood just how many lives Bob Gurnsey touched through the ripple effect of creating our sport. Millions, without a doubt, around the world. His creation has spawned an industry and jobs, created a competitive outlet for people who didn't do "conventional" sports, brought about friendships and rivalries, and then more friendships, and even saved lives by giving people a reason to stick around.

We can never thank Bob Gurnsey enough for all he's done for all of us. Rest easy, Bob, we'll see you at the staging area.

God, I can't tell you how many friends I've made due to the sport he invented. How many experiences and stories to tell for years because of it all.

RIP.

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.
