When Mitch first came to Canada he worked for CN Railway for a short time. They lived in Drinkwater, Sask and Mitch took an upholstery course. He took a position at Tynan Upholstery in Calgary and it was there he built his shop and started his career as an upholster. Later Mitch and Betty moved to Chilliwack, BC and continued Modern Upholstery and where he retired. It was very successful for many years. Some of his work still exists at a few restaurants in the community. We would like to say special thanks to all the staff and volunteers at Cascade Hospice who cared for Mitch and showed all of us much kindness at this difficult time.
