SASKATOON – The mother of Saskatoon homicide victim 30-year-old Angose Standingwater hopes those who know what happened Saturday when her son was murdered come forward.
Standingwater was killed Saturday night at a business in the 3000 block of Clarence Avenue South. Police had received a report at approximately 10:57 p.m. May 20 that a man was suffering from a serious injury. He died at the scene.
“I really hope someone comes out and tells what happened,” Lorrinda told SASKTODAY.ca late Sunday afternoon.
Standingwater was from Thunderchild First Nation but grew up on Poundmaker Cree Nation. At Pow Wows he participated in Grass Dances and sang with Young Thunder, when he could, said Lorrinda.
“He loved hand drumming and singing even at home here,” she said.
He also enjoyed playing soccer and basketball.
Standingwater had his Class 1 truck driver’s license and drove semi-truck for Thunder Farms out of the Turtleford area. His nickname was Goose.
Standingwater was a father of five children, two girls and three boys, said Lorrinda. He was also the oldest brother of 11 children.
“He left a lot of brothers and sisters,” she said, adding that he was the best uncle to his nieces and nephews.
“He always made everyone laugh.”
