Dear Fanclub members and friends,
Please join me in pausing and reflecting for a moment as there are bigger things in life and death than who is the next head coach and sporting director of our beloved VfB Stuttgart or whether Germany qualifies for the round of 16 tonight.
It is with greatest sadness that I have to inform you that our Honorary Auditor and founding member of the Fanclub Tim Frederik Kohler has passed away yesterday morning in an alleged hit-and-run accident along Adam Road in Singapore. Tim was pursuing his passion as a triathlete on one of his regular early morning rides when fate struck and took him away from us forever.
Our thoughts are with his wife and two young daughters and other relatives and friends, who like us will all miss him dearly. May the bereaved family find the strength and support needed in such difficult circumstances. Our best wishes are with them.
As for Tim we will be forever grateful for his participation in the Fanclub over the years, not only as Honorary Auditor, but also occasionally watching the VfB matches, playing bowling tournaments with us or joining futsal games. May he rest in peace.
With deepest sympathy
