Died at Hamiota, Manitoba after active life, latterly with "interests in farming, gardening and genealogy". He had served in various capacities in churches, schools, and archives, helped Hamiota maintain a lead in Communities in Bloom competitions, and transcribed cemetery and church records for the Manitoba Genealogical Society.

He "would have been pigeonholed by demographers and policymakers as being on the wrong side of the digital divide. They would have been wrong. He never lost his curiosity about the world around him or his awe for the wizardry of the Internet that connected him to it." - Paul W. Taylor in Government Technology.
