He took a keen interest in the progress of the municipality. A carpenter by trade, he conducted his own contracting business for some years and was in charge of some important carpenter undertakings in Preston, including the Town Hall, St. Peter's Lutheran Church and some of Clare Bros. buildings. For many years he was an engineer at Pattinson Woollen Mill, and for 30 years owned a grocery store adjacent to his home on Guelph St. Four wives predeceased him. Surviving are three daughters.
