The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association and by extension the local football family extends deepest condolences to the family of Richard Fakoory following his passing earlier today. Fakoory was a longstanding servant of football in Trinidad and Tobago. He was the owner of local club St Ann’ Rangers, formerly Superstar Rangers for several years up until 2019 and last served as chairman of the T&T Pro League. He had a medical emergency and underwent surgery on Tuesday at West Shore Medical in Cocorite before his passing. Richard was 71, born June 22nd, 1947.
TTFA President David John-Williams, currently away on football business, expressed his sympathy to Richard’s wife Angela and his two children Kyle and Rachel.
“I am indeed extremely shock upon hearing this sad news. Richard was a stalwart and lifelong servant of football and sport in Trinidad and Tobago. It is a tremendous loss for sport in general and I wish to extend deepest condolences to his wife and family,” John-Williams stated.
The members of the TTFA and the football fraternity are deeply saddened by this news. Richard’s love for the game and his gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts. May God give him eternal rest and his family the strength to bear this great pain.
