During WW2 I decided to go to Toronto and learn a trade as a radio operator prior to being called for military
service. During the radio course Transport Canada offered me a job and after graduating from Radio College of Canada on June 1944, I proceeded to Edmonton Alberta for weather training and subsequent posting to the radio station at the R.C.A.F. Airport in Snag, Yukon.
During my short stay at Snag, the temperature went down to 58 below. Part of the R.C.A.F. work area burned to the
ground and in September 1945 was in a truck accident where another operator was killed and the department transferred me to Grande Prairie, Alberta the next day.
At the end October 1980 after being on sick leave, my employment with Transport Canada came to an end after
over 37 years.
At the age of 55 , I was too young to retire completely so l went into Real Estate. In 1994, I suffered a minor stroke and was told I had possibly 5 years to live so I in March of 1995, I left real estate and had a house built, which I designed and with the help of my six children finished the interior, in which I still live, backing onto the military base in Kingston, Ontario.
Since early 2000, I have been putting together a story of my life from 1939 and the places in Canada that I worked at for Transport Canada, to the present time 2017. I will be 92 in June.
