As a boy, he used to model after he was discovered riding a streetcar with his mother and brother. By nine, he was delivering for a local pharmacy riding his bike. After finishing school, he went into the typesetting trade where he excelled and made his career.
He loved sports and pursued paddling with his brothers and won the North American Championship in 1955. He also loved to curl and golf. He married his sweetheart, Carolyn, in 1958 and they had five daughters.
A full life lived and a well loved man!
Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us footprints on the sands of time;
