His marriage had been childless, but he was like a big kid himself. He was full of fun, an absolute scream to be around. We went out to dinner just once before he got to know the children for real. He was sturdily built but tiny in stature , not more than five-foot-three.

He was a big fan of the Disney parks, saying, “Everyone in the world will come to these gates.

RCMP said a man was pronounced dead at the scene after officers were called to field north of Lanigan High School at 9:15 p.m. Family members identified him as Drew Rossen. 

His older brother, Matthias Rossen, said Drew was one of six siblings. The family and the entire Lanigan community are in shock, he said in an interview on Monday.

“It’s still really fresh and difficult.”

Visitors have been dropping by to offer condolences and help, he said.

“The support of Lanigan has just been amazing … From food to emotional support, friends of Drew’s have stopped by — upwards of 50 to 60 of them … just to say their condolences to mom.”

Friends also established a Go Fund Me campaign in support of the family. As of Monday afternoon, more than $16,000 of the $20,000 goal had been raised.

Body of Canadian killed by ISIL returned

  Body of Canadian killed by ISIL returned The mother of a Canadian man killed while fighting Islamic State militants in Syria says her son's body has been returned to Canada. But Tina Martino of Niagara Falls, Ont., says she has not yet been able to see the remains of her 24-year-old son, Nazzareno Tassone, because his casket was sealed when it arrived late Saturday night.

Matthias described his younger brother as a “little guy” who loved fantasy series like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. He said Drew was a “kind-hearted” young man who was well-liked in the community, which was evident in the number of people paying their respects.

“I think that’s one of the reasons so many people have been reaching out,” he said. “They just felt that he was such a good person, from his employers to his friends to his teachers, they knew what a wonderful, little genuine person he was. He wasn’t big in stature, but he was really big in his heart.”

Drew was the passenger in the ATV, known as a “side-by-side.” Matthias said it was his understanding that neither Drew nor the driver were wearing seat belts or helmets when the vehicle flipped at a high rate of speed. He said alcohol “was a contributing factor.”

The 18-year-old driver was taken to hospital with what police described as “serious injuries.”

Lanigan Mayor Andrew Cebryk said in a statement that the community “stands together in this time of tragedy.” 

“Only time will heal the loss we feel.”

A funeral for Drew is scheduled in Lanigan at 2 p.m. on Saturday. The location is still being determined.
