He was a boiler inspector for Cooper Bessemer and made weekly day trips to the Bruce Nuclear Plant when it was being built to inspect it. He retired late seventies and passed away in the early 80's - possibly 1981 or 1982. He had a single sister in Windsor. He and his wife Isabel had no kids. Isabel passed away around 1986.
