Born in High River, Alberta, Canada, and raised with his two older sisters in the small town of Frankburg, Alberta, Virgil graduated with a Law Degree from the University of British Columbia in 1960 and practiced law for nearly 30 years. Though he was a lawyer by occupation, he was a cowboy at heart, and spent many happy years with his family on their ranch in Priddis, Alberta. Virgil's love of life and enthusiasm for adventure lead to a full and rich life which he generously shared with many friends and family. Virgil and Lea moved to Utah in 2002 where they resided until his passing.
