He was the son of the late Zoel and late Eva (Collette) Vienneau.
Born and raised in Moncton, NB. In the mid 40’s, he was one of the youngest in Canada at 15 years old to obtain a license as a Ham Radio Operator (VE1UP/VE9UP), a hobby he enjoyed until the last few years. In 1952, he obtained a Commercial Radio Operator License at the St. John Technical School. He had an extensive knowledge of electronics. From 1953, he worked on Magdalen Island as a Radio Operator at the Aircraft and Marine Wireless Station for Canadian Marconi, and later Transport Canada. In 1960, he was transferred to Moncton, and promoted to Superintendent, Landlines Communications for the Atlantic Region, where he retired in 1988. In 1968, he began building his home on the Shediac River where he continued to reside until his illness. A person of many talents, he enjoyed woodworking and hand-made most of his home’s furnishings in his workshop.
