Born on a farm near Malonton on 27 June 1942, his childhood was spent at Winnipeg Beach before moving to Winnipeg in 1957 where he graduated from the Manitoba Teachers’ College in 1962. His 35-year teaching career began at a one-room school at Whitemouth Lake. He then taught at Whitemouth School (1965-1967). While teaching, he completed BA and BEd degrees. In 1974, he moved to Dauphin where he was Vice-Principal of Mackenzie Junior High School (1974-1987) and Principal of William Barker Elementary School (1987-?). He also served as Principal of Henderson School and Ochre River School. He retired in 1997. He died at Dauphin on 12 June 2000 and was buried in the Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens.
