Background — Family


I was born in Dawson Creek (BC) and have 1 brother (Ross) and 2 sisters (Sharon and Lorraine). Our family is third generation grain farmers with Ross continuing to farm. My sister Sharon is retired from the Telus Corporation and can now spend some time relaxing and keeping her partner (Wayne) busy in the yard. My other sister Lorraine who worked for the BC Government passed away on July 3, 2016.

My father, Nello, passed away on September 24, 2004 and my mom, Shirley on July 17, 2015. I miss them all every day.

My wife, Sacha, and I were married in 1997 and moved to Calgary (from Victoria) in the summer of 1998. Sacha and I had a healthy son in September, 2010 (Reece Michael) and returned to Victoria in 2013.
