     "Uncle" Ivan passed away while driving home from Asquith to his farm. His vehicle was found off the road. He apparently had a heart attack, and then he went off the road.

Years earlier Ivan had a close brush with death. His son, Lindsay and Ivan were clearing grain from an old building that had been partitioned to store grain. The wall to the next bin collapsed, covering Ivan with the cascading wheat. Lindsay quickly mounted the tractor and knocked out a wall, releasing the grain, and allowing him to get to his father. The peak of Ivan's cap had provided a small breathing space for him.13
     In the obituary of Everett Arthur Young who died 1 March 2008, Everett's brother-in-law, Iven Smith was listed as predeceased.14

Sturdy Speaks at Asquith Service
ASQUITH
Empire Youth Sunday was observed in Asquith when representatives of the local and surreounding school districts, gathered at a mass service held in Memorial Hall at which J.H. Sturdy, secretary of the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation, was special guest speaker. Harvey Summach was chairman, and Miss Verla Forsyth presided at the piano. The service was arranged and drafted by members of the Asquith Teachers' Local and a large attendance proved its popularity. Prayers were offered by Mr. Wardlow, student in charge of St. George's Anglican Church, and Scripture reading was given by Mrs. Crane of the Pentecostal Mission. The Asquith Company of Girl Guides, in uniform, formed a choir singing the anthem, and a duet was sung by Iris and Eileen Johnson. A. Rumbelow took charge of the musical part of the service. Speaking as a returned soldier who had seen service in the First Great War, Mr. Sturdy described the present conflict as amonstrous insult thrown in the face of the Prince of Peace. The only weapon to use against totalitarian ideolgies, he said, is education, for such things can only spread in an environment of ignorance.20
