A successful peat moss and cranberry farmer, he has spent much of his life quietly supporting a wide range of organizations, both large and small. Not only has he been a generous benefactor of the Vancouver General Hospital and the University of British Columbia, but he has also funded environmental groups and provided support and comfort to people who are homeless or terminally ill.
