Richmond Kickers lost one of their own this weekend. Kofi Nti played for the Kickers for three years and most recently was Community Director with the Richmond Kickers Youth Soccer Club. He passed away unexpectedly over the weekend.
He has no family in the states after his father passed away this past year. A GoFundMe campaign has been started to help send his body back to Ghana and mother.
From the GoFundMe page, posted by Kwaku Adu-Gyamfi:
Coach is too simple a word to use when referring to Kofi because he was so much more, a mentor, friend and confidant who truly loved what he did and his passion was such a positive influence in so many young and old lives alike. Kofi truly cared so deeply about every child he has ever coached – he treated each and every one as if they were his own. He listened, encouraged, developed, supported and challenged without judgement, he was one of a kind; that is why his name is and always will be spoken with great admiration and respect. He left an imprint on all who have had to privilege to call him coach. To say he will be missed by both players and parents is an understatement. His shining spirit and big bright smile will never be forgotten – his spirit will forever be a part of each and every one of us and will always be there on the pitch…rest easy my friend… your legacy lives on.
