Survived by his wife Jeannine, 4 children and 9 grandchildren. "Early in his career he became involved in an effort to provide better care to Aboriginal communities in Northern Manitoba. For 33 years, he flew at least once a month to Norway House, Cross Lake and other First Nations, in small airplanes and often under difficult conditions. Two generations within these communities grew up under his care, and the children he looked after in the early years later brought their own children to see him."
