Lawyer, judge.

Born at St. Boniface on 26 October 1918, he attended St. Paul’s College, University of Manitoba, and Manitoba Law School. During the Second World War he served as a navigator with the Royal Canadian Air Force. Returning from military duty, his 36-year legal career involved work as a lawyer in The Pas, magistrate in the Dauphin judicial district (1952-1960s) and judge in the Provincial Court (1973-1979), and coroner (1954-1960s). He served as a Bencher for the Law Society of Manitoba (1968-1971) and was made a Queen’s Counsel (1965). He was a member of The Pas Rotary Club and The Pas Chamber of Commerce, and President of the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce. He died at Victoria, British Columbia on 18 December 2014 and was buried there.
