I reside with my wife Wilma in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, in our home overlooking beautiful Crescent Lake.
Our son Ken lives in California with his wife Kathryn and daughter Sydney. Our daughter Anita and her husband live in Winnipeg, Manitoba with their two daughters Emma and Lillian.
I began a teaching career that would span some thirty-five years and would take me west to British Columbia and north to Swan River, Cranberry Portage, Flin Flon and Norway House.
Most of my teaching years were spent near Winnipeg in the city of Portage la Prairie where I held positions as teacher, counselor, Special Education coordinator, and consultant for the Gifted & Talented.
A brief foray into the field of Meteorology provided me with the opportunity to live in Moosonee, on the tip of James Bay, doing upper atmosphere research.
