Farmer, municipal official, MLA (1950-1953).

Born at Bradwardine on 18 September 1895, son of George H. Seens (1866-1910) and Jane Whittington (?-?), he was educated at Tarbolton School. He served as a municipal councillor for sixteen years, and a Reeve from 1940 to 1950. He was a member of Masonic Lodge No. 115 at Rivers. He was elected as a Progressive Conservative candidate to the Manitoba Legislature at the 1949 general election but was defeated in 1953. On 26 February 1916, he married Annie Mae Wood (?-?), daughter of George Wood, of Lenore. They had three children. He died at Brandon on 26 November 1989 and was buried in the Tarbolton Cemetery.
