BJ was also active in playing sports, fishing and hunting. He enjoyed life to the fullest but he loved nothing more than spending time with his family and friends and bonding with his kids.

BJ leaves behind to cherish his memory, his children: Matthew Lee Shaddon of San Diego, California, Christopher Tyler Shaddon and Billy Joseph Shaddon both of Waldron, Arkansas, and Avery Jo Shaddon of Ft.

BJ will be missed by all that knew him and the many whose lives he impacted including a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, neighbors and loved ones.

BJ was preceded in death by his dad, Billy Max Shaddon, one brother, Jimmy Dale Frederick, maternal grandparents, Joe and Willie Helton and paternal grandmother, Maxine Shaddon.
