He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 68 years, Leona; children: Sandra St. Denis (Dave), Jean Ashdown (Chris), Elaine Campbell (Shane), Adele Arnold (Tom Gregory), Don Masson (Karmen); son-in-law, Bob Desruisseaux; 12 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Born in Lethbridge, he and Leona raised their family in Red Deer and Sherwood Park. He worked primarily in municipal government at the County of Red Deer, County of Strathcona and AUMA.
