Ehiogu collapsed at Tottenham's training centre, where he worked as the club's under-23 coach, on Thursday after suffering a cardiac arrest and his death was announced on Friday morning.
Spurs paid tribute to Ehiogu on Friday, with head coach Mauricio Pochettino saying: "Ugo was a lovely man and we had a very good relationship from the first day we arrived at the club.
"He was a person who always helped us a lot and we will miss him greatly. We are all in shock, it happened so quickly.
"I send all my love to his family and friends at such a difficult time. It’s a huge loss both personally and for all the Tottenham Hotspur family."
A final tweet from Ehiogu promoting kindness has gone viral - sent on March 29, he said: "Gave a homeless girl £10 last night in Dalston. She didn't ask or beg. Random impulsive act from me. Not gona lie. Felt good. #dosomethingkind."
As a result, people from across the world have promoted the #dosomethingkind - the hashtag was trending in Great Britain and the United States - with some donating £10 to charities in memory of Ehiogu.
