Robert born in February, 1959 and Scott was born in March, 1960. Sadly, in December of 1960, Rick died in a car crash on Christmas Eve. Joan married Tom Ashcroft on June 9, 1962, initially living in Melville, SK where their daughter, Colleen was born in July 1963. Being the family of an RCMP officer, meant that they moved extensively until finally being able to settle on Yorkton in September, 1976, making a permanent home for the family. Joan was a stay-at-home mom until the three children graduated. She then took a job in the shoe department at The Bay in Yorkton, where she made lifelong friends including Ruth. She stayed with the Bay until its closing in the city. In 1986, Tom and Joan moved to an acreage south of Yorkton, building a lovely log home, where they spent their retirement years, only venturing out for a few memorable vacations, including a trip to New Zealand in 2000. Joan was blessed to enjoy seeing her two sons marry. Robert married Audrey (Riffel) in 1987. They live in Yorkton and have three daughters; Skye, Autumn and Rae.

‘Write me soon. Stay safe’: A story of Canada’s opioid crisis, told in letters from prison - The Globe and MailWednesday, March 27, 2019
Herd. His mother and sisters called him Manie – little man – because he was the only boy in the family. Story continues below advertisement He was torn away from his home on Saskatchewan's Peepeekisis First Nation to be educated in church-run residential schools, emerging scarred by sexual and physical abuse. For years, he would cross the street to avoid passing a Catholic church. A skilled outdoorsman who liked to fish for pike and hunt deer, beaver, bear and moose, he fell into a pattern of drinking, drug taking and fighting that kept him behind bars for most of his adult life. Pictures in an album show Mr. Daniels as an adult; a tattoo on Ms. Barber's back, below, shows him as a child. Tijana Martin/The Globe and Mail Moira Barber, his common-law wife for 13 years, met him when she was dealing drugs in Guelph, Ont., and needed someone to collect money for her. She asked for the hardest, meanest dude in town. But Mr. Daniels had another side, Ms. Barber says. He was a keen artist who sometimes drew tattoos for a living. He loved roughhousing with her grandchildren, rolling around with them gleefully until the long hair that stretched down his back was a tangled mess. Mr. Kell grew up in London, Ont., 90 minutes down the 401 highway from Mr. Daniels. He started using drugs when he was a teenager. Before long, he was dealing cannabis and injecting hard stuff. As he puts it now, he would keep using until he ended up in the back of a police car. Between some 20 incarcerations, he tried over and over to get clean. He suffered several overdoses, coming close to death. In Spencer Kell's dining room, angel and devil portraits drawn by Mr. Daniels hang behind him. Blair Gable Mr. Kell and Mr. Daniels forged their friendship during two stints sharing a cell at Maplehurst. On the range at "the Hurst," they won respect for their experience and toughness. Mr. Daniels had an ugly temper. He could flip on you in a second, Mr. Kell says. But he stuck up for the underdogs, especially the new guys. Mr. Kell looked up to Mr. D...
