He attended Norview High School. He worked as an armed security guard at several locations, with the most recent being Norfolk Naval Shipyard and Virginia Beach Psychiatric Center.
Shanardo was an avid football and basketball fan and he thoroughly enjoyed being his sister’s, Galaisha Goodhope, personal basketball trainer. He was well-known in Hampton Roads, especially in the Norview area of Norfolk, for his larger than life personality. For many years he played with the Oakmont Corruptors Football League. Shanardo was a downright fool…. in the most affectionate way. Shanardo was simply a cool, down to earth dude that people of all walks of life enjoyed being around. He was also known for his generosity to others and his giving heart. He will always be greatly loved by countless family and friends and there will be a noticeable void with his absence.
