Born on a farm near Brokenhead, Manitoba on 1 January 1914, as a teenager he worked as a farm worker in Saskatchewan and a mine accountant in Ontario. He returned home and obtained a teaching certificate, serving as the Principal of Ladywood School (1950-1958) and Brokenhead School (1958-1959). After obtaining a degree in Economics from Bradley University (Peoria, Illinois), he taught business courses at Technical Vocational High School in Winnipeg, and later was Principal of its evening program.
