I'll buy a patch, but you might want to start another thread if you plan on getting that set up to keep this one more personal.

Gearbox was my go to place for gear or airsoft advise or anything. He was an exceptionally helpful person and although I didn't personally know him, his advise and character has stuck with me through my few years airsofting. I wish I could have played along side him. Rest in peace Ron.

Rest in peace, Ron.  A good man definitely taken from all of us airsofters before his time.  All of Coydogz will miss him.

Marney sent me this information this afternoon. There has been a bank account set up to raise funds to help pay for funeral costs and the medical costs that have occurred to this devastating event. All donations can be sent to this account

I have not been in this community long enough to know who Ron was, I maybe saw him once at Gearbox. But from what I hear he is a great person who helped anyone he could in any way he could.

There are not enough people like that in the world and I am sure he will be missed by a lot of people.

Rest in Peace.

As Vince said "His loss diminishes us".  His memory truly enriches us all as well.  Ron did so much for this sport, for the community, and for all the lives he touched.  My heart breaks for his family, team mates, and friends.  He was one of the kindest people I have had the pleasure to interact with and  my life is richer for having known him.  My thoughts and prayers continue to be with his loved ones.

I did not know him personally, but I did meet at him gearbox twice when I was in phoenix. He was a genuine guy, and he did right by me when I went in there to buy some stuff. He seemed like a really swell guy, and I know that he was an integral part of this community and it forming, so that others like myself could take part in this sport.

It seems to me that he had huge part in the development of the airsoft community in all of arizona, and airsoft has had a huge positive effect on my life. All of the people I have met, the experiences I have had, the hobby helped make me who I am today. That goes for anyone who has been to airsoft games hosted by AA, TAC, CT, etc, so really he had a profound effect on all of us.

Only wish I could have thanked him again. Hes in a better place now. RIP.

Maybe I missed it in the thread but does anyone know if there will be a funeral service?  I'd like to go if I can.

My team and I send our dearest condolences to the family.  Even all the way up in Prescott, he had an impact on the sport, and it's just not the same driving down to Phoenix anymore without Gearbox.  He will be sorely missed.
