Hi Brian,

I found his page of commemoration on the site for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. He is buried in the Hanover War Cemetery (Plot 2, Row F, grave # 11).

Unfortunately, it does not give any information about his parents. However, it does give his regimental number, J24653. With that information, you might consider applying for a copy of his attestation records from the Canadian Archives.

It shows his rank as "Flight Lieutenant (Air Bomber)".

Good luck,
