Shanardo B. Goodhope

Sunrise: September 12, 1979

Sunset: February 4, 2019

On Sunday, February 4, 2019 at 2:21am, Shanardo Brian Goodhope passed away at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Shanardo was born September 12, 1979 in Norfolk, Virginia.  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. 

Shanardo is survived by his Children, Shamond Goodhope and Christine Goodhope; Mother, Patricia Goodhope; Father, Orlando Goodhope(Tonya); Paternal Grandmother, Gladys Goodhope; Sisters, Marquita Goodhope-Colbert (Jacquet), Galaisha Goodhope (GG) and DanyaelGoodhope; a Brother, Cory Goodhope; and a host of Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and Cousins.  

He was preceded by Herman Goodhope-Paternal Grandfather, Charlie Jones-Maternal Grandfather and Nannie Mae Jones-Maternal Grandmother.

    Nardo was like a big brother to me; Him and my sister Stephanie was super close along with my other cousins that went to school and hung out with nardo but the way everyone dealt with each other you couldn’t say we weren’t family. Coming up out Norview seeing nardo out oakmont or at the court playing ball or seeing him laid back joking,chilling coming from Browns is a memory I’ll always cherish forever’ along with many other memories. Still doesn’t seem real and it’s definitely a Hard pill to swallow but overall Nardo and we gone miss you. From the Lindsey, Joyner and Wilson Family we just wanna say we love you and until we meet again Rest easy. “UKat”

    To the Goodhope family, please know that I extend my deepest sympathy, for the lost of Shanardo. He worked with us at Virginia Beach Psychiatric Center, and let me say, he was the best. I called him “G”. It is so hard to know that when I come to work, he will not be there. But I do know this, God needed another Angel, and “G” was the one he chose. He will always be in my heart.
    Shanardo, will truly be missed.
    I Pray God wrap his arms around Shanardo’s family, and he will get you through this difficult time.
    May the Lord bless and keep you.
