He grew up working with the RAF as a mechanic assistant on Hawker Hurricane aircraft. His hobbies were bike racing and soccer. He loved his West Ham Hammers and was lucky enough to watch the 1966 World Cup Final in person at Wembley. As an adult he was a carpenter before deciding to move his new family to Canada in 1973. He continued his skilled carpentry trade working for Andre Knight Construction before being a lead with Volkswagen Canada in their quality control department. Retirement occurred in 1997 when Mum and him grew closer together. His love of travel was infectious to the rest of the family and took him and Mum all over the world.
