He obtained employment with The Sterling Stall Group in 1964 and continued with them until his retirement. He was a lifelong member of the Holy Ghost Church and the Holy Ghost Fraternal Aid Society. In his younger years, he was a member of Royal Canadian Legion # 246. Dad worked hard and always made it a priority to be there and support his family. He derived the most pleasure by taking his family to different areas of the province to enjoy the outdoors. He truly enjoyed fishing, mushroom picking and later, fell in love with going to the cottage. He also led prayers during family gatherings. Most recently he took great pleasure in sitting in the backyard taking in the sun, along with his cat (Misha), while watching his wife work in the garden.
