shad gaspard

The wrestling world unfortunately suffered another loss recently as Shad Gaspard was found dead at the age of 39.

Gaspard went swimming with his 10 year old son at Venice Beach on Sunday, and when they got caught in a riptide Shad directed a lifeguard to rescue his. Shad Gaspard’s son was rescued, but he was then hit by a wave and that was the last time he was seen before his body was recovered a few days later.

The wrestling world has been mourning the loss of Shad Gaspard, and his wife recently posted the following statement on behalf of his family:

“Aryeh, myself and the Gaspard and Chittick families would like to take this time to thank everyone for their prayers and support, as we mourn the terrible loss of our beloved Shad.
.
.
Shad was our whole world and we were his. There are not enough words to describe what he means to all of us. He was our heart, our soul, our protector, our warrior. He was a bright force of nature, who brught joy to many through his joyous and gracious nature. .
.
The outpouring of love from Shad’s friends, colleagues and fans has meant more to us than you can even imagine. .
.
We’d like to once again thank the lifeguards, coast guard, divers, fire and police departments for their efforts.
.
.
Shad was and will always be our real life super hero.
.
.
I love you more, my love ❤️
