David ‘Ikponwosa Chika Sola Orduson was born into the family of Felix & RosittaOrduson on the 18th of July 2000. He was the third of the four children.
David was a young man that was loved by his siblings and everyone he encountered. David started his education at University Heights Charter school, then transferred to North Star Academy before finishing his primary school education at Union Ave Middle School. He attended Shabazz High School where he graduated and started attending Nassau Community College.
David was a young man with a vision and knew what he wanted in life. He grew up loving football and was very good at the game. He played for the USA in some of the games against other countries, allowing him to travel out of state for games and for football combines. He played for his high school and was to start another season with his college team. He won a few championships with his high school and college team. He was also ranked in the Super 100 All—State Football Team and received an award with the Men of Essex for outstanding athletic achievement. Not only was he a football star, but he also ran track as well, winning meets and championships with his high school team.
David’s ambition was to play in the NFL, which he focused on and was determined to achieve. He was working very hard towards that goal, working out, reaching out to coaches, and making the right decisions before this tragic accident happened.
David always made everyone around him smile and laugh no matter what mood they would be in. There was never a dull moment with him. He knew how to turn everything into an adventure or change the mood in the rooms he walked into. When in the house you knew when he was around because something always changed when he came through the doors. Loving, caring, compassionate, hardworking, and intelligent are just a few ways to describe who he was. There was not anything he would not try, and he constantly needed to be challenged. He is 1 of 1, a rare person and he will be truly missed. May the good Lord who has called you to his eternal home be your guide.
David was the beloved son of Felix and Rositta and was the cherished brother of Rachael, Paul and Chiazor.
