He served as a Bencher for the Law Society of Manitoba (1913-1923).

On 19 September 1893, he married Gertrude Anna Buchanan, daughter of Irish immigrants Alex and Emma Buchanan. They had no children. He was a member of the Masons (Belmont Lodge No. 13), Odd Fellows, Canadian Order of Foresters, Knights of Pythias, and the Anglican Church. He died at Morden on 9 February 1923 and was buried in Hillside Cemetery.
