Passed away Monday, April 15, 2019 at Chelsey Park Residence in London, Ontario in his 95th year. Born and raised on the family farm outside of Kyle, Saskatchewan on December 26, 1924. His interest in farming and nature developed through the good years and the lean years and through the eras of working with the team of Clydesdales to the first tractor. He graduated from the University of Saskatchewan as a Professional Engineer (Agriculture). He had a long and varied career working on engineering projects in Canada and in Indonesia. He enjoyed golf, curling, and gardening and was an active supporter of the church and amateur sports in the communities in which he lived.
