Born West Vancouver at the end of the second world war. Early life there shaped my positive outlook on life. Mum was a hard working lady from the interior of B.C., my father was a hard working man who served his country proudly during the war. Dad and mum started a business after dad was discharge from the Canadian Army. After learning quite a bit from the adults around the boat docks where mum ran a resteraunt and dad operated the boat rentals, I was able to make a few extra dollars with the rowboat that the family let my use. It was a great start to life for me. After that, things became a little more serious, work and school became a thing. More on this later.
