  4. Dear Shaddy Family,
    Everything changes in life when you lose someone so close to you. As I remember growing up in our neighborhood many years ago your Dad would always and I mean always give me the wave or the head nod, yelling across the street just to say hi and ask how I was doing! Great memories growing up on Stanford Ave. Cherish the memories of your father with your family, this seems to make the pain and hurt a little more tolerable. Our neighborhood is dwindling but we will always have the memories!

    I had the priveladge to develop a freindship with George through both Craig and David. I have fond memories of spending time with George and family at CU football games as well as his beautiful home in Pueblo.

    George was the very definition of a family man, leader, mentor and someone who led through action.

    God Bless the entire Shaddy family.

    My heart is broken today as I write about my buddy, Mr. Shaddy. Every summer I enjoyed walking the South track with him. He was so proud of his family, and shared all of your accomplishments and all of his hopes, dreams, and prayers for all of you. Mr. Shaddy was the “Mayor” of the South High School track morning walkers. He knew everyone, and if he didn’t know you, he would by the second lap! I will miss him very much. My heart goes out to Rose, Debbie, and all of the family. May God bless you. Love, Tracy
