After the terrible death of ex WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard, reported in our newsboard yesterday, with the corpse that surfaced from the waters of Venice Beach after more than 48 hours from the disappearance of the athlete in the waves of the Pacific Ocean, a news has been released that will partially cheer the athlete's fans as far as possible.
After the tragic hours of waiting with the worst possible epilogues, the news arrives that a well-known American company, Collar & Elbow, has launched its personal fundraising campaign for Shad's family, now orphaned by the father of the family who he was thinking of bringing his salary home, in one of the worst moments that can happen in a lifetime to a wife and son.
The athlete, who used to use clothing from the same company, will be the posthumous testimonial of the new campaign by the US company. On May 17, 2020, Gaspard and his son Aryeh were among a group of swimmers caught in a strong rip current at a Marina del Rey beach in Venice Beach, California.
Aryeh was rescued, while Gaspard himself disappeared underwater. After searching 70 square nautical miles (240 km2), the U.S Coast Guard suspended the search. On May 20, 2020, Gaspard's body was found washed ashore in Venice Beach, and was identified by the Los Angeles County coroner's office.
Gaspard, 39, was best known as half of the WWE tag-team group Cryme Time, along with his partner, JTG. He had been missing since Sunday afternoon, when he went swimming with his 10-year-old son, Aryeh, at Venice Beach. “I join fans around the world as we remember Shad Gaspard as a beloved performer and a caring father,” WWE wrestler and executive Triple H tweeted.
“In absolutely tragic circumstances, please keep his loved ones in your thoughts”. “Shad died a hero, saving his son’s life. As a parent, there are no words to even explain that,” former wrestler Taz tweeted.
“He was a really positive & funny guy every time we spoke, just a good dude. Prayers for his family during this horrible time”.
