He was born in Halifax in 1916 where he was an infant survivor of the Halifax Explosion. He spent the greater part of his life in Sydney, N.S. His first job was as a delivery boy for Mr. Purlin.

He was minister of visitation at Edith Avenue Baptist Church in Saint John. At the same time he served as the first full time minister for Smithtown, Titusville and Salt Springs area churches. He retired from active ministry when he and Ethel moved to Truro, supply pastoring in Bass River and Belmont/Debert N.S. In 1986 he returned to Saint John and did visitation ministry thru Hillcrest Baptist Church. For the last twelve years he has made his home in Hampton with his daughter Cheryl.
