T. Justin Schaid
Timothy “Justin” Schaid passed away on December 27, 2021 at the age of 60 after an epic brave battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his devoted wife, Leslie, and his sons Kai, Ian, and Evan. Justin was born to Joan and Arnold Schaid, spent his childhood in Greensburg Pennsylvania, and was a longtime resident of Los Angeles, California.
Justin is survived by his spouse and true love, Leslie Wah, and his sons of whom he was most proud: Kai, Ian, and Evan. His surviving family also includes his mother Joan Gordon, siblings Daniel (and Pamela), Jeffery, Kathleen Fleck, Monica Fierce, Teresa (and William) Filtz, Charity (and Glen) Beveridge, Rebecca Burkley, and Kerstin (and Scott) Herrod, as well as step-sisters Jill (and Jim) Evans and Jennifer (and Duke) Vinson. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Arnold Schaid, step-father Jack Gordon, and brother-in-law Steven Fierce.
Justin was devoted to his family, his love of playing and writing music, and his enjoyment of classic cars. He was a talented artist and designer all his life, working as a commercial artist. He composed and wrote music and lyrics collaborating with other artists in his bands Hear&Now and SACREDGAME. He was often seen around his neighborhood walking his dog Duncan, or enjoying a drive in his VW Fastback, his Corvair, or riding on his motorcycle.
There will be a private burial of urn and a tree planting in Justin’s memory amongst family members. A memorial service and a celebration of life will be held during the summer for invited family and friends.
