His organizational and managerial skills were recognized early in his career and carried him to the top of the Canadian financial community. As an accomplished pianist and song writer, he wrote music for many well know musicians. His song Glengarry My Home expressed his sincere love for the county of his birth. He grew up in Glengarry, faced and met the challenges of the urban community, but return full  circle to the place he always felt to be his home.
