Dad was appointed a Barrister-at-Law in 1942, and served as a lawyer with the Royal Canadian Navy (RCNVR) until 1945. He married Mary Irene Morton during the war.

While Dad articled, Mary supported them by working directly with the President of Noxzema (Canada). She left Noxema to care for her children and home, and to help Dad advance in his profession, while at the same time continuing to be very active in the community, holding various executive positions with the IODE, Queensway Hospital, and Red Feather (United Way).

In 1957, Dad was appointed a Q.C., one of "Our Counsel learned in the law for the Province of Ontario" by Queen Elizabeth.

In 1958, his beloved wife, Mary, died in a car accident; in 1959, he married M. Gwendolynne Danks, who brought a son, Paul, to the marriage. Paul died in 2002; Gwen, in 2003.

For fifty years Dad enjoyed summer sojourns with his family in Muskoka, first on Muldrew Lake near Gravenhurst, then on Lake Joseph near Port Carling.

After a distinguished career with the law firm of Andersen, Sinclair, Walters, Dad retired in his seventies to Malaga, Spain. He learned Spanish and built three homes along the Costa del Sol, the last of which in El Palo had a wonderful view of the Mediterranean. He was very active in Malaga"s oldest Anglican Church, St. George"s, turning his hand to renovation and fundraising whenever needed.

Dad was all his life an accomplished pianist of classical music. His children remember many an evening falling to sleep to Clair de Lune. Whether on his Heintzman Baby Grand in Toronto, or his Playel upright in Spain, he found great relaxation and enjoyment in his music, often extempore composing at his piano.

Dad was always enthusiastically engaged by any social or professional activity in which he was involved. Just four weeks before his death, he could be seen with his caregiver and walker heading to High Park, a favourite destination all his life, where he had often taken his children to see the Zoo. He remembered sledding and skating in High Park as a boy from nearby Dunn Avenue, where he lived with his parents, Walter and Josephine, and brother Dick.

After living well for thirty years in Spain, Dad came home in 2010 to be near his family. He ended his days at The Grenadier Retirement Home. We cannot thank enough the wonderful staff at The Grenadier for all the continuously kind and patient attention they gave him.

After a massive heart attack on Nov. 1, Dad nonetheless celebrated his 99th birthday on Nov. 17 in St. Joseph"s Hospital, where he received excellent care."[495]
