HOWARD LLOYD ("BUD") MORTENSEN
I was born in 1930 in the Shaunavon Hospital. Started school at Ear View then attended Mount Royal, Kemmel Hill in Antelope and finished with High School in Gull Lake. Dean has recalled the teachers in the country schools.
I married Irene Booker in 1948 and worked for the Pool Elevator in Gull Lake and then in Regina. We moved to Souris, Manitoba in 1949 and I worked as a C. P. R. Locomotive Fireman between Souris and Estevan from 1949 to 1954. In the fall of 1954 we moved back to Gull Lake and I began work as a battery operator for Mobil Oil. In 1959 we bought the Joe Rainey farm and farmed along with battery operating.
We have five daughters: Cheryl (Mrs. Wayne Raketti) of Red Deer, Alberta, who has two children; Terry (Mrs. Dale Irwin) of Saskatoon; Wendy (Mrs. Rick Munt) of Gull Lake who has two children; Debbie who works at the Research Station in Swift Current and Cindy who is still going to school in Gull Lake.
