Born the eldest son of Albert Benjamin Revel (c1892-1969) and Mary Jane Sim (c1897-1971), he grew up in the Eden-Glenholm area and entered the field of education, earning BA (1959) and BEd (1961) degrees from the University of Manitoba. He was Principal of Birnie School (1952-1955), Wellwood School (1955-1957), Kelwood School (1957-1959), and Teulon High School / Collegiate (1960-1980).

He later served as the PC party President (?-1984). A long-time resident of Teulon, he received the Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal (2002).
