Hardware dealer, municipal official.

Born at Hartney in 1916, after completing high school at Hartney, he worked in his father’s Hartney hardware store after a period in Vancouver. In 1941, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and taught navigation at the Commonwealth Air Training Plan at Brandon and at Summerside, Prince Edward Island. The war ended before he could be deployed from training. He returned to Hartney and the hardware business, eventually taking it over after the death of his parents, and operating it until retirement in 1975. He was a municipal councillor and Mayor of Hartney (1964-1967). He moved to Winnipeg in the early 1980s where he died at the Grace Hospital on 20 April 2014.
