I was born at home in the Pettapiece District, west of Rapid City. I attended the Little Saskatchewan School then went to Rapid City for high school. From there I worked at various jobs and returned to the farm in 1965, where we still live. I got married to Sharon in 1967 and we have 3 children, Brian, Dayna & Craig. I worked with Cubs and Scouts for 19 years, as a leader, trainer and District Commissioner. I was first elected to Council in 2006 and am now in my second term.ADDRESS: Box 403, Rivers, Manitoba
