He was born and raised in the Annapolis Valley and graduated from the former Nova Scotia Agricultural College and the Ontario Agricultural College. His career included service with the Canada Department of Agriculture, the Newfoundland Department of Agriculture and Forestry and the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture and Marketing.
