He was born in St. Thomas, Ontario on September 15, 1879. He married Rosa Maud in Ingersoll in 1910, then moved to Woodstock and by 1916 they had 3 children. He enlisted in the 168th February 15, 1916 as a Private. He lived at 117 Wellington St. N. and stated his occupation as a Teamster. While serving with the 18th Battalion he was wounded in a German attack on April 5,1918. He died of his wounds the next day at the 8th Casualty Clearing Station near the Village of Duisans France. He is buried in Duisans British Cemetery, Etrun, France which is about 9 kilometres west of Arras.
