In his early years he liked the Stock Car races in Melfort on the track just outside of town. He lived for some 20 years in Saskatoon where he made much use of a motorized wheel chair. The new videos on JW.Org were enjoyed very much my him. When he was well in Melfort the ministry was am important part of his life. He had a regular magazine call in Melfort for many years.
