Born at Ottawa, Ontario on 12 July 1919, he attended the Ontario Agricultural College (now part of the University of Guelph) and received his BSA degree from the University of Toronto in 1943. He was employed for seven years by the Dominion Rubber Company Limited (now Uniroyal), Tire Division, in Kitchener and Winnipeg and for fifteen years by the T. Eaton Company’s Winnipeg store.

He retired from the university as an Associate Professor in 1988 following his election as the Liberal MLA for Radisson, serving one term. In his retirement years, he remained active in Liberal Party affairs. For several years, he was a member of the Kiwanis Club of Fort Garry, the Wildewood Club, and the Manitoba Historical Society.
