We are sad to inform you of the sudden and unexpected passing of Rolly Magallanes on October 25, 2018.   What was supposed to be an exciting playoff game between Wootton High School and Richard Montgomery High School turned tragic as Rolly suffered cardiac arrest doing what he loved most.  As a community, we've lost a dedicated referee, trainer, coach, and soccer enthusiast.  Rolly coached  countless children in our soccer community and ref'd in Montgomery County for sixteen years.  Rolly's love of soccer and coaching was evident as soon as you spoke to him.  He was a consummate professional, always encouraging and pushing his athletes to reach their highest potential.  He was one of a kind and will be missed by the many people he inspired both on and off the field.  

Rolly was the Head Coach of the Maryland State U12 Boys ODP.  He served as an assistant coach for the Maryland State U12 Boys ODP for two years and participated as a Maryland State ODP Player Assessor for 8 years. Rolly was involved with soccer as a player himself, coaching club teams, high school and at the collegiate level for 25 years.  He was a USSF soccer trained official for the past 16 years and Vice President of Metropolitan Washington Soccer Referee Association.

We are reaching out to all good hearted fellow friends for extending financial support to his family in this time of sorrow. Please do not hesitate to contribute to this fund and feel free to share it with your friends and family. We thank you a lot for your kindness and support.

In one short week over $11K was raised in Rolly's honor and has been given to his family to use as they need. On Monday the Wootton and Richard Montgomery soccer teams gathered to complete their game and to honor a man who gave his life to the game of soccer. We were so grateful that Vanessa, his wife, was able to be there and personally thank all those who attended and contributed.

Thank you to everyone who has so generously donated to Rolly's fund. His wife Vanessa will be coming to tomorrow afternoon's penalty kicks between WHS and RMHS at the Richard Montgomery soccer field. The kicks take place at 3:30pm so she wanted to come before they begin to take the opportunity to thank the girls in person for their efforts and support.

For those who want to pay their respects in person, Rolly's funeral information is below as was printed in the Washington Post. Relatives and friends may call at Collins Funeral Home, 500 University Boulevard West, Silver Spring, MD, (Valet Parking), on Thursday, November 1, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Service and Interment private.
