Ordained a priest in the Anglican Church in 1941, he joined the Canadian Army in 1951 and served with the United Nations in Korea, afterward serving in the Canadian armed Forces in Ontario, Alberta, Nova Scotia, Manitoba and Germany. After retirement in 1972, he worked at Memorial’s medical school where he championed the cause of rural outport students. Always active in sports as a young man, he helped to organize the Canada Summer Games in 1977 in St. John’s, Newfoundland. He is survived by his loving wife, Elizabeth Maude (Gould) and his five proud children, Ian, Sheila (McBride), Christine, Kathleen and Kevin.
