He started in business in London as a New Zealand merchant at Daswood House, Old Broad St., from which he retired in 1905. He was a director of the New Zealand and River Plate Land Mortgage Co.

His bright and genial personality will be sadly missed by his devoted wife and numerous sorrowing relatives and friends.
