I played with Tim on Impact and he helped us a lot when I was on Impact Echo. He was calm when things went crazy, analytical under pressure and one hell of a man to know. Its a tragedy. Words are lost on most of us to know someone so good who we can't ask questions, call for help, or share a beer with.

Tim Montressor was what most of us wanted to be in this world and in paintball.

The embodiment of a good person, with great skill, but someone who didn't have to prove it to you.

On a lighter note about Tim, I spilled pickle juice on him ONCE and was almost thrown out of our van. Seemed like it was acid. Such a chill guy under pressure guy was unhappy with pickle juice... Was incredibly funny

Nah I saw someone posted on here a few days ago, saying that he went to the hospital with a severe headache, so possibly an aneurysm. I’m sure someone will make a statement eventually though.

The man was an absolute legend in every sense of the word. I had met him a few times and he was always had a smile on his face. He will be sorely missed.

Devastating

Thoughts and prayers for Tim and his family. Tim was great on and off the field.
Great to watch play or just sit and talk. I am sure the community will find a way to keep his spirit alive. Huge loss for the paintball community and beyond.

This kind of gives us a reality check, you never know when someone you are close to may not be there anymore. It shouldn’t take something like this but...
Be thankful for your circle of people and try and grow that circle....reach out,be in the moment.

"Our beloved son Timothy L. Montressor passed away June 22, 2020 at Excela Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg, PA his home at age 36.

There will be no funeral services due to Covid 19, his remains are being handled by Pantalone Funeral Home in Greensburg, PA. His ashes will be spread across the globe by his family and friends per his wishes. A memorial for his contribution to Paintball is underway.

We last saw Tim in late March when he visited us in Tampa, Florida. One of our discussions was about the risk of traveling due to Covid 19. Tim told me, “Mom, if I die tomorrow, I have lived a rich and full life. I have traveled the world multi times, have seen and done things that most people will never have the opportunity to do. Hands down, I have no regrets and would do it all over again”.

As we plan his funeral and deal with his estate, I can tell you his long time girlfriend Shannon Mattox, and his inner circle of friends, Russell, Jason, Chad, Sam , Ryan, and Adam with DLX Technology are the best people you could ever meet. We know why they were friends for nearly 20 years. The character of these friends speak volumes. Tim’s family is finding comfort in the stories of their adventures with Tim from Skydiving, swimming with a Great White in South Africa, Eating dumplings made of mystery meat in Thailand, Running of the Bulls in Spain, camping in negative 50 degrees in Alaska to see the Northerns lights, finding a 300 lbs stuffed bear in the team house, feeding lions, tigers and bears, back packing across Europe, jumping off trains, being detailed in Asia and being accused of being a gun runner, beer fests, the list is endless. The stories made us laugh and cry.

Tim’s dad and I can state he could not stay in one place long, he loved to travel. He bragged about being home only 6 days in one year. It was not uncommon for Tim to be home just long enough to do his laundry before leaving again. He would jump on a plane in a blink of time to anywhere. The only greater love was paintball. He started playing in high school working part time at Futureball near Brighton, Michigan. Paintball allowed him to travel, provided an income. Tim ate, dreamed, talked paintball. He played for Teams in Detroit, Phillie, Edmonton, Dallas, and Tampa. One of his highlights was winning the World Cup and creating the Iron City Classic. He traveled over a million miles, all continents. Tim made friends where ever he traveled.

We could write pages about your short lived life, but the one thing your family knows is that you lived life to its fullest and that you were loved. Our family is receiving emails, phone calls, texts from hundreds near and far of condolences.

Tim we say goodbye, we love you and look forward to hearing about your adventures in heaven.

Dad & Mom

This guts me. I feel for his parents. It must be so bitter sweet to raise such an incredible person.

When I think of where I'd like to see paintball go in the future, Tim Montressor's example blazes the trail.

Sounds like ICC is off this year between Tim's death and the rona.

I never had the chance to meet Tim personally, but everything I've read over the last few days has been incredibly positive. He proved being kind and humble off the field doesn't mean you can't play hard on the field. I don't play competitively any more, but I do hope to emulate his compassion for newer and younger players once I'm able to get out again. RIP

Truly heartbreaking, Tim was such an incredible ambassador of the sport, a true legend that lived life to the fullest. The quote above from his mom is incredibly inspiring:

“Mom, if I die tomorrow, I have lived a rich and full life. I have traveled the world multi times, have seen and done things that most people will never have the opportunity to do. Hands down, I have no regrets and would do it all over again”.

Tim leaves behind a great legacy, and a fond remembrance from so many in the sport. Thank you John for honoring Tim's memory with your amazing words.

Devastating news to open up the front page to. Been used to seeing his name throughout paintball news on happier notes for ages.

If it is COVID, hope that helps remind the community to stay safe and careful.

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.
