Body of Alexander man recovered from Yukon lake - St. Albert GazetteSaturday, March 2, 2019
Sandulak said he'd been outfitting for 32 years and never had anything more serious than scrapes or bruises happen to him or his crew.
"It's a huge, huge hit to all of us, but especially to my son and the other fellow who was with him at the time. They're going to be carrying Jason along with them for the rest of their lives. He was definitely a good friend."
Keith is survived by his grandmother Lena, sister Dakota, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Kootenay said the family was still making funeral arrangements.
Many people nowadays die from disease, accidents, or overdoses, Kootenay said.
"My brother, he got to go doing something we both love doing."
The coroner's service, Faro RCMP, and the Yukon Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board are continuing to investigate this death. The coroner's service urged residents to use extreme caution on Yukon waterways and not to travel at night.

‘All of this is your fault,’ Jaxon Joseph’s mother tells Sidhu - Barrhead LeaderSaturday, March 2, 2019
I promised Jaxon as he laid there on that cold, hard gurney that I would fight for him for the rest of his life. I would do anything for my baby."
Andrea and Chris Joseph told the court about the impact the crash has had on their lives, detailing the days leading up to the tragedy and the desperate hours that followed.
Before the crash, the duo had travelled to Humboldt to watch Jaxon, 20, play a hockey game and Andrea met his girlfriend, Quinn, for the first time.
"We later found out that was the night that he said ‘I love you' for the very first time to a beautiful young lady," Chris said.
The next morning, the parents drove back to Edmonton, giving their son a hug and a kiss for what would be the last time.
On April 6, just before the family had planned to sit down and watch Jaxon's last game of junior hockey online, they received a call that the team bus had been in an accident.
"Our hearts just dropped. Time just stopped. Our world crashed in," Andrea said.
"I tried calling his cellphone over and over, leaving him desperate messages," she told the court.
With no information about Jaxon's condition, the Joseph family, including his sister Taylor, packed their bags and drove to Saskatchewan.
"I hyperventilated all the way to Lloydminster," Chris said.
The family had heard their 20-year-old son had been airlifted to a hospital, but they had no certainty or answers as they drove through the night on the cold winter Saskatchewan highways.
"The minutes and hours of not knowing were the hardest part," Chris said.
They arrived in Saskatoon in the early hours of the morning. The next day, Chris and Taylor went to identify the body of a young man who may have been Jaxon. They searched the body for any familiar signs of their loved one but couldn't provide a positive ID.
It wasn't until Chris went to visit three surviving victims that he realized his son had not been transported to the hospital.
"Right there, that was my moment – the moment that I realized that my son was dead, that he was never taken to the hospital, that his body was still laying on the cold ground with a blanket over his face," he said.
"I now had to go back to the waiting room and confirm the worst news of our lives to our family."
The next day, the Joseph family went to the funeral home to identify Jaxon's body. There were 14 victims to be identified and only six rooms available, so families had to identify their sons in shifts.
"They came back different. They were changed forever and I knew I would be, too."
Today, Chris still carries Jaxon's socks, which he took off his son's feet that day at the funeral home – a decision he says was inspired by the family of fellow Broncos player Stephen Wack, who ...
