Deceased was born in the township of Saltfleet and engaged in various occupations during his long life. In 1914 he with W.A. Reid established in Beamsville what is now the Beamsville Basket and Veneer Co. After disposing of his interests in the basket business he moved to Grimsby and for some years conducted a butcher business in the store now occupied by the Liquor Control Board. After disposing of this, he purchased what is now the Jarvis Bakery and conducted that concern for some years. After leaving Grimsby he conducted a hardware business in Stoney Creek for a number of years, retiring from it to take up farm life.
