Kofi Kingston pays tribute to Shad Gaspard
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/21/2020 at 10:00 AM


Kofi Kingston paid tribute to the late Shad Gaspard with the following tribute on Instagram:

"Ive struggled all day to find the words. Partially because a piece of me feels that if I stay in denial and I dont acknowledge it, then it wont be true. But alas, we have lost an amazing father, husband, son, loyal friend, and a brother in every sense of the word.

Instead of focusing on the 'why' and the 'how', Im choosing to honor Shad by focusing on the way he made me feel, the ways he made me laugh, and the many different ways in which he put a smile on my face.

This video and series of photos is from Walemania last year. As I stood there taking in the amazing energy of that crowd, I suddenly found myself rising rapidly into the air. I didnt even have to look; I knew it was Shad unexpectedly hoisting me up, as he often did, this time onto his shoulders. My level of hype instantly increased tenfold. Shad was so genuinely excited for me. It was almost as if he transferred that energy through me. It was easily the pinnacle of a truly magical night. I wont ever forget that moment, as it summed up what kind of person Shad was: one who always strived to lift his brother up.

Ill never forget his heart and constant enthusiasm, his honesty, and his sheer authenticity as a human being.

Rest in paradise, my brother. Your selflessness will always be remembered. Thoughts, prayers and positive vibes to the Gaspard and Chittick family."
