Dennis Tippmann Sr, inventor of Tippmann markers, passes away

A Sad Day. We learned early this morning of the passing of Dennis Tippmann Sr. He was the founder of Tippmann Pneumatics

"Dennis Tippmann, Sr. got his start into the pneumatic industry in 1986. That year, Tippmann Pneumatics, Inc. began manufacturing air powered paintball markers (guns), and accessories. As Dennis Tippmann's knowledge of Pneumatics grew, he decided to branch off into other areas which could utilize pneumatic power."

To the man who brought more new players to the game than anyone else, thank you. Rest In Peace

Thank you Dennis for everything you did for the game. When I reffed our Tippmann Pro-Lites were basically bomb proof despite our customer's best efforts.

Some really interesting ideas came out of Tippmann back then too. The air assist feed system, an RT Model 98, the flatline barrel system...

Innovators are what move this industry forward and it's sad to know we lost one. Best to his family and friends.

So sad... prayers for the Tippmann family. Millions of players have been positively effected by Mr. Tippmanns contributions to our sport.

Rest In Peace, Dennis. So many of us would never have found this great game if it weren’t for you. Thank you, sir.

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.
