Obituary for Steward Richard
Steward was born Tuesday, April 14, 1992 at Thompson, Manitoba. He lived all his life in Pukatawagan, Manitoba and graduated from Sakastew School in the summer of 2010.
Steward enjoyed all sports, especially marathon and snowshoe races. He competed in a variety of summer and winter events such as X-company, Indigenous Games and the Manitoba Athletic Games.
Steward had a love for nature and enjoyed it through fishing, hiking and paddling. His favorite colors was blue and red. He also loved to entertain children and spent many hours jumping on the trampoline. Music was a past time and he enjoyed playing guitar and “jamming out” with his friends. He also enjoyed doing carpentry projects.
Family was important to Steward and he was proud of all their accomplishments. His smile expressed the love he felt and he had a special place in his heart for his Koo-Kums Genevieve and Marie.
Steward’s unexpected passing, Saturday, February 9, 2013, came as a shock to us all and he will be deeply missed by all those who knew him.
