Born at Brussels, Belgium on 13 September 1866, he was educated at the College of Jesuits of Brussells and the Royal Atheneum of Arion, in Belgian Luxemburg. He served in the Belgium Army before coming to Winnipeg around 1891 where he worked as a financial broker. In 1906, he was a founding member of the St. Charles Country Club. During the First World War, he enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force and served as Quartermaster of the 197th Battalion. He was discharged in early 1917 but his whereabouts after 1920 are presently unknown.
