He was born in 1930 in Dusseldorf, Germany, and left the country in 1956 to start a new life. Within a year of arriving in Canada, he began what would be a lifelong career as a boatbuilder. He was at the forefront of the yachting industry in the 1960s and ’70s as one of the founding partners of C&C Yachts.

He is survived by Lisa, his wife of 58 years, his five children, eight grandchildren and a great-grandchild.
