He was very devoted to his faith, being very active in the church and was proud to be a part of the Knights of Columbus, where he became a 4th Degree Knight and a Grand Knight. He started working for the Government of Alberta in 1950, and continued there until his retirement in January of 1985. He had a very successful career and his contributions to Alberta’s Irrigation farm community was appreciated by all. His career began as an Irrigation Specialist in Lethbridge. He then relocated to Calgary as a Regional Irrigation Specialist. His last role was Coordinator of the Irrigation Management Program in Lethbridge. He always spoke fondly of his friends and co-workers and was grateful for the memories that each one of you gave him.
