I was born in Kingston, Ontario, in 1936, attended Victoria PS (the original building is now incorporated into Goodes Hall, the home of the Queen's University School of Business), Rideau PS, Kingston CVI and Queen's University, completing degree and post graduate work with a BA and MEd.

My working career involved a first year of teaching in 1959-60 at Gananoque SS, followed by 6 years of teaching at Queen Elizabeth CVI in Kingston for the Frontenac County Board of Education (FCBE), now the Limestone District School Board. In 1966, a move to the Ontario Ministry of Education as a mathematics inspector and mathematics program consultant for 13 years, with a one-year exchange back to teaching in 1975-76 at Bayridge SS in Kingston, was followed by a return to the Frontenac County Board of Education as a Superintendent of Education in 1979 and then retirement 13 years later, in 1992.

Retirement from the Board of Education was followed by driving for a Kingston limousine company, ExecuTrans, from 1992, and running a small driving business as well, called Seniors to the South. For the first five years of 'Seniors' I drove folks to and from their Florida vacation homes in their cars, making the return trip by airplane. In addition, I drove people, again in their vehicle, to and from the airports in Toronto, Ottawa, Dorval or Syracuse, bringing their car back to their Kingston home and then returning to pick them up at the airport when they returned from their vacation. Other trips involved taking people to weddings, funerals, meetings or homes of their families, always within a single day's driving distance of Kingston, sometimes waiting and bringing them back that day and sometimes returning to get them another day. Following 2003, as my confidence in my night vision declined, I restricted my driving to daylight hours with both 'ExecuTrans' and 'Seniors to the South'. Then, in July 2007 I retired from ExecuTrans when the owner sold the business, but continued my own business with limited Seniors to the South activity, restricting my driving to a radius of about 300 km from Kingston.

Immediately following my retirement from ExecuTrans I joined the Canadian Cancer Society as a volunteer driver, taking cancer patients to and from their doctor's appointments at the Cancer Centre of South Eastern Ontario, located at Kingston General Hospital. In addition, there were occasional trips to Toronto or Ottawa with patients whose appointments were at the Princess Margaret or Mount Sinai Hospitals in Toronto or at the Ottawa General Hospital in Ottawa. In October of 2010 I took on another volunteer activity -- doing pickups of foodstuffs from three Starbucks stores in downtown Kingston three mornings a week and from Costco each Saturday morning for the Salvation Army food bank on Patrick St in Kingston.

This website is the result of an on-going interest of mine in the history and growth of the Anglin family. It began with the posting, in October, 1999, of the book "Anglins from Bandon to Canada" which was originally published in 1995. Since then, through the cooperation of many in the family, it has expanded considerably and has been re-named "ANGLINs FROM IRELAND TO CANADA" in its current form. I find it easy to keep it current on the WWW and I am constantly being given updates by family members.
