He had a happy childhood and spent his summers exploring Waterton. As a teen, he loved motorcycles and cars, which turned into a lifelong interest.

After retiring to the Crowsnest Pass, he came out of retirement for several years to teach shop at Catholic Central High School, Crowsnest Consolidated High School and Sparwood Secondary School. He loved woodworking and would spend hours in his basement workshop and would also build two houses for his family. 

He also loved the outdoors, which came from growing up in Waterton. He loved skiing at Castle Mountain, was a member of the ski patrol and was also employed by the ski school as an instructor in the 1980s. He was also an avid mountain biker and fisherman and loved fly fishing around the Crowsnest Pass and biking in the coulees in Lethbridge. His true passion was photography. He became interested at age seven and carried on through his whole life. He was an avid nature and landscape photographer and had pictures featured in various publications including Canadian Geographic.
