Dear Ocean Lakes Baseball Families and Friends:
The baseball world suffered a loss this past weekend when long-time KPB, Kempsville Middle School and Ocean Lakes High School baseball player Dominiq Castillo Porterfield was involved in a wakeboarding accident. Dominiq was a junior at the University of Texas San Antonio. Friends and family are stunned with the loss of such a bright, charismatic, dynamic, respectful, and team-first hardworking young man. Dom’s smile would light up a ballpark. His parents were always supportive of tournaments and family events, and were key in giving back to the league.
To honor his memory, a scholarship has been set up through the Virginia Beach Education Foundation, to support seniors heading to college. Donations can be made in honor of Dominiq to the “VB Education Foundation”. Contributions to the scholarship may be mailed to: VB Education Foundation, 2512 George Mason Dr., Virginia Beach, VA 23456. The VB Education Foundation can also accept card payments online at www.vbef.org or you can call their office at 757-263-1337. Please consider giving back, in honor of one of our own.
A memorial reception to be held immediately following the service at the Norfolk Christadelphian chapel at 3930 Llewellyn Ave in Norfolk.
