Shad Gaspard was found dead on May 20th, 2020. He was out on the beach with his son when a high tide took them both under. A rescue team was sent out to find them. When they found Shad first, he instructed them to go get his son first and come back for him. They were able to rescue his son, but by the time they came back a second wave took Shad under. They weren’t able to find his body for a couple days until it washed on shore. Shad Gaspard passed away a hero.
