He had a varied career. RCMP officer, Conservation officer, Director of Parks in Saskatchewan, Director of the Natural History Museum in Regina, and a Real Estate agent.  Because of these different jobs he had a lot of stories to tell.  He had even started writing down his children’s story of Grampa Whackam.
