While speaking to an Israeli news site, Ram’s father Menashe Ram said, “Omri is our eldest son and also our eldest grandson. He was a charming boy whose most striking feature is that he loved everyone, and everyone loved him. He spread light, love and joy and help to friends, and there was a whole world.”
“He just graduated with a degree in business administration and economics. A boy who was always smiling. He was killed along with two of his friends. We were in contact with him since the morning and at about 10:30 the connection was lost. After a few hours we received a terrible message.” Ram’s mother also published an eulogy on social media, a part of which read as follows:
How many experiences did you go through,
How many friends did you collect,
In recent days we’ve been getting lots of messages.
About people you met,
That touched their soul,
That you were happy, that you laughed, that you listened.
That’s you, man of the people
A genuine soul with a huge smile.
Ram’s funeral was reportedly held on 10th October 2023. The economics graduate who was the oldest of the three siblings loved poker and enjoyed teaching it revealed an acquaintance of Ram who spoke to Pokernews.com. We offer our condolences to the grieving family.
