Born at Brandon on 7 July 1911, he was educated at the University of Manitoba, receiving a BSc and medical degrees, the latter in 1936. He continued his education in internal medicine at the Montreal General Hospital until 1939 when he joined the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corp during the Second World War. At the conclusion of the war, he returned to Winnipeg and practiced at the Winnipeg Clinic until his retirement. He was on the staff of the Winnipeg General Hospital and the Deer Lodge Hospital, and was a member of the teaching staff of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Manitoba. He died at Winnipeg after a lengthy illness, on 22 October 1996.
