Shad Alan Collie, 51, of Valley Station, Kentucky, passed away suddenly Monday, July 27, 2020, with his family by his side. He was a man of God and very proud of his faith. Shad was a self-employed contractor, he also worked for the Louisville Water Company for 15 years. He was a graduate of Valley High School Class of 1987, where he was a dominating force wearing jersey #51, Shadrack! He also went on to attend Union College and Holmes Junior College, where he continued to play football. Shad was an avid sports fan and he loved the Louisville Cardinals. For many years he enjoyed coaching little league sports where he inspired kids to be their best. In his spare time he could be found soaking up the sun on the beach. He was always the life of the party, putting a smile on your face and love in your heart. Most importantly he loved living life to the fullest! His legacy of love and spirit will live through his recipients of organ donation. God speed, beautiful soul. Shad was met at the gates of heaven by his beautiful mother, Linda James Collie, maternal grandparents, Urban and Mary James, and paternal grandparents, Solon and Lorena Collie. He has left behind to cherish his memory, the love of his life, his adoring wife Kristina; proud father of Hanah, Dakota, Reegan (expectant mother of his first grandchild) Collie, and his step daughter Brianna Eatmon; siblings, his twin sister Cheri Murphy (Jeff), Aaron Collie (Erin), and Mark Dowden (Tammy Sutton), his loving father Glenn Collie, the mother of Shad’s children, Kelly Collie, several loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and too many friends to count. Let’s not forget Shad’s crazy ass dogs, Buddy and Milo. The family would also like to extend their gratitude to the University of Louisville Hospital, ICU 5 Core Medical team for their loving care. Funeral Service will be held at 7pm on Monday, August 3, 2020, at Advantage Funeral Home Hardy Chapel, 10907 Dixie Hwy. Visitation will begin at 2pm.

We know how your love and loss can impact you while staying strong for each other. The stories and celebrations were amazing to reflect from Bob coaching Shad in his football all-star game, to the stunning connection as Cheri and Shad as twins. While words are never enough, our hearts and prayers are with you always.
Love, Bob, Tricia and Casey Bronger

So sorry for your loss! I remember Shad from his days at Johnsontown Ele. He was always a cheerful, full of energy kid. Everyone wanted to be his friend. He loved to talk and entertain people around him and he had a kind heart. He will be missed!!
He was a classmate of my son Todd, who died too young also!
