Kingston dubbed Shad as a ‘gentle giant’ who enjoyed the presence of other people. He continued by saying that his impact on people’s lives was emphasized by the number of persons who attended his memorial:

“On the inside, he was kind of a gentle giant who really enjoyed the presence of other people, and it was shown by being there on that beach with all of those people, I looked around several times saying, ‘man, Shad really had an impact.’

“It’s really unfortunate for his wife [and] his son, but with a glass half full mentality, it really emphasizes how important it is to live your life, with enthusiasm, with passion and kindness.” said Kofi Kingston. “So that way, when the day comes, when you do get called to a different place, you have left an impact, and Shad, 100 percent, left an impact.”

Shad Gaspard passed away after being caught up in a riptide at Venice Beach, California earlier this month. Lifeguards had reached out to the former wrestler but he asked them to help his 10-year-old son first.

Gaspard unfortunately got crushed by another large wave before rescuers can reach back to him. People from around the world including present and past wrestlers like Kofi Kingston and The Rock have since paid their tribute to the former WWE star.
