In Memory of Jim Brandewie

The OCASL Community mourns the loss of Jim Brandewie (1962-2020). Jim was respected and admired both on and off the field. A devoted husband, father, and friend, Jim LOVED soccer and we are all lucky to have known him.

Jim played with the following teams: A-Team(2012), Blueish-Black(2012), Hilary Chi(2012), Eurosport FC(2012-2017), Ice Rhinos(2013-2016), Footy Pebbles(2016), Durham FC(2014-2016), Kiss My Pass(2015), Skormor Rangers(2015-2019), Chapel Hill FC(2016-2018), Stroke City(2016-2019), Jablonski(2016-2018), and Bel Gioco(2019).

We've compiled a few photos of Jim, taken over the years. We hope they help you remember him. Our most sincere condolences go out to his family.
