He worked for over 30 years with the Greater Winnipeg Transit Commission, Winnipeg Emergency Measures Organization, and the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Winnipeg, retiring in 1979 and moving to Sandy Hook two years later. He was Mayor of the Rural Municipality of North Kildonan from 1954 to 1956. He became Mayor again in a 1962 by-election after the death of John Dickson.
