Born at Owen Sound, Ontario, he came to Manitoba with his family in 1883 and settled at Rapid City, where he was proprietor of a hardware store for 30 years prior to retirement in 1946. He served as Mayor of Rapid City in 1906 and 1907. He was a member of the Masons (Corinthian Lodge), Rapid City Curling Club, and Rapid City United Church. He died at his Winnipeg home, 535 Jubilee Avenue, on 24 June 1954 and was buried in the Rapid City Cemetery.
