YOUDELL: Joseph Carlton Youdell passed away peacefully on Friday, May 23, 2014 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre with his children by his side. Joe was born on February 14, 1930 in Ambleside, England. He attended the Kelsick Grammar School from 1948-1950, where he excelled in athletics. He held more sporting records at one time than anyone in the school’s history. His love of athletics translated into a career of teaching physical education. He started his career as a teacher in Kidderminster, England. On August 19, 1966, he moved to Cranberry Portage, Manitoba where he taught at the residential school. He moved to Brandon where he completed his Bachelor of Education in Physical Education in 1973. He split his teaching duties between Meadows and Linden Lanes Elementary Schools in Brandon and the local school in Alexander. Joe selflessly volunteered his time and was very active in the Brandon School Division No. 40 Physical Education team. He helped organize the city track and field meet, cross-country runs and swimming programs. He also enjoyed coaching soccer and teaching ladies’ fitness. Joe benefited from having a 'booming voice' which made the use of whistles in the gymnasium unnecessary. Joe retired from teaching at Linden Lanes in 1995. Joe was an avid fisherman and was an accomplished blues piano player with a soft singing voice. He also enjoyed oil painting, reading and sipping on a good port. He is survived by his son Richard (Andrena) and their children Frederick and William, his daughter Dorinda and her children Charlotte and Alexandra, and their mother Diana. Joe was predeceased by his parents Richard and Elsie Youdell, his brother Allan and his son Mathew. In keeping with Joseph’s wishes, there will be no service.

RICHARDSON: David “Ross” Richardson passed away after a long battle with cancer on May 22, 2014 at the age of 66. He went peacefully, in the comfort of his home in Clear Lake, MB, with his wife Judy by his side. Ross was born on April 11th, 1948 in Selkirk, MB and grew up in Brandon, MB. This is where “by the luck of the draw,” he met Judy, the love of his life, when picking her for his high school curling team. After their marriage on July 10th, 1971, Ross’ employment with the RCMP took Judy and Ross to Winnipeg, MB. He enjoyed his 33 year career with the RCMP and the many friends he made along the way. While he was passionate about his career, he was a true family man at heart. Ross built their cottage at Clear Lake, MB during his first battle with cancer 17 years ago. This is where he spent happy summer days on the golf course and winter days on the cross country ski trails with friends. While he enjoyed his bonspieling years with friends, in retirement, he fell in love with wintering in Florida. Here, he traded in his curling broom for golf clubs, a tennis racket and bike rides along the beach (often complimented with a cold brew with friends). From a young age, Ross was the life of the party. He was a jokester who loved to dance, entertain, and always brought the best out in people. Even during his toughest times he still put others needs ahead of his own, forever the gentlemen. He will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by his wife Judy, son Michael, daughter Jennifer (Shawnessey), brother Brian (Kay), and sister Anna (Biagio).
A celebration of Ross’ life will be held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, Brandon, on Tuesday, May 27, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. with Funeral Celebrant, Kim Lewarne, officiating.
