Born at Lemonville, Ontario on 17 March 1862, he came to Manitoba in 1882 and became employed with the Manitoba Cartage and Warehousing Company, eventually becoming its General Manager. He remained with the company until his death. He was keenly interested in horse and dog breeding, was an active lacross player and snowshoer in his youth. He curled and served as President of the Granite Curling Club. He was a founding member, in 1905, of the St. Charles Country Club. He died at his Winnipeg residence, 420 Edmonton Street, on 1 October 1925 and was buried in the St. John’s Cemetery.
