Rest easy, #40. A true legend, I hope no one ever forgets Tim's story and what he brought to the sport.

I think all the pros should wear a #40 for the next nxl or Icc event.

I think I can speak for the whole noobies organization and say that Tim will be missed. Whatever we needed Tim was always there for us whether it was getting our guns tuned right, telling us small things to work on from a few points he got to watch or getting us a couple beers at ICC, he was everything you could ever ask for out of a sponsorship rep.

One of the most competitive people on the field and one of the nicest guys off of it.

Rest easy #40

I haven’t played ball in so long but as a kid Tim had the attitude and drive that builds teams. I may get back into the sport, realized life IS short. Keep things in your life that bring YOU happiness. God Bless PB commun. around the globe. -M

I played paintball for 20 years. His name has been around since I have been playing unfortunately I never got to know him like many others. THIS ONE HURTS. This one hurts bad. He was an ambassador by the truest definition and will be missed. I hope we all can learn be like Tim and if we can, the world will be a better place.

As many have said Tim will surely be missed. Iíve been playing paintball for almost 20 years and Tim was one of those guys in our sport that just made it better. Always positive, always smiling, always sincere and always willing to help out anyone. I met Tim when he played for the All Americans back in the day and have always admired him. Over the past three years playing in the pro division, going to practice against Damage and being a sponsored team, I always searched out Tim at events, to just chat whether it be how to make the sport better, about ICC or just shoot the ****. I will definitely miss those times and our sport has lost one of the great ones.

Tim is a local legend here in Pittsburgh, and has been for over a dozen years now. Our local scene will no longer be the same. However, Tim's impact on paintball goes well beyond Pittsburgh. It goes worldwide. The man lived and breathed traveling and playing paintball anywhere he could.

The one thing that I always thought made Tim unique was his ability to be the kindest, gentlest person off the field, but the second he stepped onto the field, he was an absolute killer. A true force to be reckoned with and he made all of his teammates ready to shove it down your throat.

He will be greatly missed by the entire community. Rest easy, TM40.

I spent quite a bit of time with Tim during my travels as a Social Paintball videographer years ago. We first got to know eachother during a 2013 event in Thailand, where we hitched a ride from the airport with a Malaysian team (Nemesis ) because our supposed driver never showed up. In 2013 and 2014 I got to spend quite a bit of time with him in South Africa during the SARPL Supercup events... I'll always remember the time when we smoked a joint with Greenspan on the lion reserve in a hot tub!

In all honesty, he truly was one of the best guys in the sport. Tim was always so kind, humble, approachable, and fun to be around. I am so so bummed to hear this news

Condolences to his family and friends...

RIP Tim... you are very much missed

WOW' I'm shocked. So sad. He's in a better place. I was emailing him just last week about a new freak tip for my Luxe X. Crazy. Thank You Tim for all you did. You will be missed!

RIP TM40! We met at PSP over a decade ago, but the impact you had on me has obviously carried through to today (and will for many years to come) since I only have been following the paintball community at a distance for years now.

My condolences to the family and close friends as I imagine the pain is infinitely worse than mine, but I will honour your positivity and thirst for life by taking more of a mindset that you exhibited during your time!

Godspeed.

Tim ran an NCPA tournament I played in 2007 at the All American Park in PA. Everyone wanted to talk to him, so he found a way to run a clean tournament while interacting with us the whole time. Zero ego, just happy to be there - RIP Tim.

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.
