Dallas Keogh-Frankling

23rd March 2006 - 27th May 2023


Dal, there are no words that will say how much we love you and how hard this all is. 

Although at times your quirky ways were sometimes annoying, it’s what will be missed the most 

(including your stats on every game).

Proud is an understatement of the kind, beautiful and polite man you have become. 

The achievements you’ve made and how bright your future was to be, is what hurts the most. 

We hope you know how much you were loved, not only by your family, but everyone. 

Your beautiful smile would light up a room without you saying a word, it was magical. 

We hope you’re smiling knowing how amazing you are. 

Fly high our little best friend, son and brother. 

Love always, Dad and Ash x 


 To my beautiful son, rest in peace, 

your name is written in the book of life and the best is yet to come. 

“You were holding your dad’s hand, even now when I got to see you, my baby, 

so beautiful you are my baby boy”.

I promise you, my beautiful strong healthy baby, love you.

Love your mum Regina 


Dallas Keogh, just 17 years, our very precious, loved and adored grandson. 

Life will never be the same without you. 

What beautiful memories you have left us with 

for all your family and friends. 

Make sure you keep on kicking goals with all of those competitive angels Dal. 

We are sure they will wrap their wings around you and keep you safe forever. 

Never ending Love from Nan & Pop Keogh xx


Our beautiful Grandson Dallas.

Little did we know that day the sorrow it would bring. 

We will miss your smiling face and “what’s for sweets Gran?”

Rest with the Angels our dear boy. 

Lots of Love, Gran and Pop x

    My heart is with everyone who is affected by this tragedy.
    But we all know Dallas wouldn’t want anyone to feel fear on the footy ground,
    so may I say to everyone do not be afraid.
    Keep his legacy going by playing the game he loves, footy.
    From losing my boy it’s made me want to share something with everyone,
    please tell your loved ones how much you love them
    and how much they mean to you, because you never know when it will be the last time.
    I would also like to say a massive thank you to all the support everyone has shown it is truly amazing to see.
