A lover of cinema since he re-opened the long-closed movie theatre in Big Valley when he was 14, he was well-known and highly respected in the cinema business all over Alberta, in particular, and Western Canada in general. To that passion, he also added flying and cooking. Cremation has taken place. No service at his request. To send condolences, please visit
