In Memory of David Ooi

Our thoughts and prayers go out to David's family.  We would like to share an email from David's father to honor his passing.  A group of players from his past Tennessee SC team wore their soccer jersey tops to the memorial service.

David played with Coach Anthony Dudley's U13 team during the 2012-2013 season, whom came and spoke at the memorial celebration.  

David passed away July 20th, 2014 after a long battle with a brain tumor. He thought the world of the team, and was so proud to be a member of Tennessee Soccer Club.  What he missed most after his brain tumor was diagnosed was not being able to train or play with the team.

Even after his tumor recurred this year, David spent the summer volunteering, helping disadvantaged children at Tusculum Elementary School and Stonybrook Apartments. He was also saving his allowance money to buy them soccer goals to play with.  

To honor David's selflessness and memory, we have set up a fund in association with some teachers at Tusculum Elementary and a local shoe store, with the aim of buying 500 pairs of shoes for disadvantaged children.  These shoes will be presented to them on "David's Day".  

Donations to David’s dream fund, may be made through PayPal (frogysfriends@gmail.com). 


Thank you for honoring David,

Henry Ooi
