Obituary: Bernard (Bart) Duteau

'Bart had a thirst for life, so in his teens he hopped on a train and worked at a logging camp on Vancouver Island before being sent home for being underage. At 18, he joined the navy for a year and then took up various jobs across Canada working for Ontario Hydro, Gulf Oil, Wildwood Surveying in Alberta, and on a survey crew in Thunder Bay. In BC in the 1950's, he surveyed parts of the Coquihalla, Prince George, McBride, and Stewart Cassiar Highways.'
