He was first employed by Sherwin-Williams Paint Company, before joining Great-West Life in 1953 and retiring in 1991 as Manager of Operational Auditing.

Cremation has taken place, and a memorial service will be held at a future date.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Agape Table or Assiniboine Park Conservancy would be appreciated.
"And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown! And he replied: Go out into the darkness and put thine hand into the hand of God. That shall be to thee better than light and safer than a known way."
(God Knows by Minnie Louise Haskins)

May our condolences bring you and your family comfort, and may our prayers ease the pain of this loss. All our love in this difficult time.
