Originally from Kinistin First Nation, Awasis made his home here in Sakimay First Nation in 2015 and started pursuing his education and eventually falling in love with the woman of his dreams Kissa. They had a precious little gift and named her Kida Jillian Obey Thomas. Awasis also became a part of the Sakimay First Nations finance team giving him the opportunity to travel for training and instantly making friends with whosever path he crossed. He will forever be remembered for his huge cheeky smile and nod and of course his crazy sense of humour.
The family would like to take this time to thank everyone for the much-felt prayers and assistance during this time.

God I remember when I was a little kid... always hanging out with Samantha. I remember we used to lock you boys out of the room and youd be banging and banging till we opened it 😂😓. I remember the smile you always had on your face ❤️ Wish I got to see or talk to you one last time. It’s been 5 years😭 can’t believe i never reached out. I’m sorry💔🧡 I cant believe you’re gone

Awasis, forever in my memories. I only knew you for 6 months, but wish it was longer. We were classmates who became friends. Whether we were studying, enjoying happy hour or walking to our favourite store, you were always fun to be around. We would meet at the Calgary airport on a Sunday and at the end of the week say goodbye from the same place. The days in between will always be cherished. You were too young and had too much potential to leave us so soon. May you find peace in the spirit world.

I won't be at the wake and fune8. I believe funerals are for the living. But I will walk beside you in your journey. You touched more than I would have believed. I may not be at your wake and funre but a piece of me will walk beside you on your journey.

I met Awasis in November 2019 while attending a program in Kamloops, BC. In a short amount of time our small class became like a second family to me. The news of his sudden passing was devastating.
I am sending my heartfelt condolences to his partner, his baby girl and his entire family.
My heart is with you all during this tough time.
Sending love and prayers from Wasauksing First Nation, ON
