Damn, Not surprising given the circumstances, but still farking sad.

The family can now at least fully start to mourn him without any what ifs.

RIP Shad, died while making sure his son lived.

What a terrifying way to go. Poor Shad. Hopefully he knew he had saved his son before he died.

Too soon to make a joke about black people not being able to swim?

Lita reportedly having an on-line underwear sale to help out with the funeral expenses.

A dude that jacked had no chance against a riptide. He must have sunk like a stone chained to a boulder.

Hopefully the son gets the support he needs.

By all accounts, Shad was a great dude.

This video of him and MVP tearing up at Kofi's Mania win is even more touching now :(

This really sucks. Everything I know of him is that he was a genuinely good guy. He may have died heroically, but that is little comfort to the family he leaves behind.
