Later, he started life as a factory worker and improved his life by graduating from Glendon College with a translation degree. He continued in that faculty as a translator.
Other projects and his love of the outdoors led to building a log cabin on his cottage property.
As a person of culture, he enjoyed good conversation, reading and of course food and wine.
