Obituary for Joseph Hanson Leo Paul Castel

On Monday, January 31, 2011 at the Nikawiy Health Centre, Pukatawagan, Manitoba, Joseph Hanson Leo Paul Castel, at age 41 years old, left us suddenly to be with loved ones and with the Lord.
Leo was born Sunday, December 14, 1969 in The Pas, Manitoba. He grew up in many different communities, but spent most of his childhood at Sherridon., Manitoba where he attended school and was taught many traditional teachings by family. Then he moved to Pukatawagan, Manitoba where his father continued to teach him the way of life and survival skills through fishing, trapping and hunting. He had so much love for others that his kindness was extended to taking care of children that he adopted in a traditional way.
Leo will be greatly missed by his common law wife Jessica Colomb; daughters Deloris Sinclair, Sherry Colomb; sons Xavier Castel-Colomb, Peter Castel-Colomb; adopted sons (in the traditional family setting) Sky Colomb, Brent Colomb; mother Helena Castel; brothers Lloyd Castel, Victor (R.M.) Castel, Dennis Griffin-Castel, Phillip Castel, Ernest (Alma) Castel and (in the traditional family setting) Lloyd Daniels, Andrew Daniels, Roy Daniels, Terry Daniels; sisters Sarah Jane (Hanson) Dumas, Juliet (Billy) Castel; special sister (in the traditional family setting) Barbara (Michael) Dumas, Mary Daniels, Doreen Daniels; and many nieces and nephews, especially his special niece Juliet Colomb; cousin Thomas “Tom Jones” Castel, Alvin Castel, Kenny Castel and his special sister-in-law Helen Castel.
Leo was predeceased by his father Peter Castel Sr.; grandparents Deny and Julie Castel, Mathias “Matt” and Sophie Charlette; brother Peter Charlette; special brothers Alvin Castel Sr., Clifford Castel, Zack “Stick Man” Daniels; sister Caroline Castel; special sister Colleen Daniels; nephews Keith “Slimmy” Charlette, Joey Charlette, Clifford Bighetty, Brian Castel; aunties and uncles Elise and Fredrick Bighetty, Marie and Edward Sinclair, Timothy Castel and Veronique Dumas, Phillip Castel; and numerous family and relatives, too many to name.
