He was known to his beloved wife Diane Dupont as a partner in life and scholarship, to his children, Alexandra and Nicholas, as a profound inspiration, to economists around the world as a highly influential and prolific researcher on the economics of water-resource pricing and conservation, to students for his devoted and energetic teaching of economics.

At Brock University, where he had served as member of the faculty of economics since 1988, he was an effective and innovative vice president of research and a co-founder of the multidisciplinary Environmental Sustainability Research Centre. Equally important, to the Cub Scout and Beaver troops he led for many years he was known and loved as Baloo.

He attended Vaughan Road Collegiate Institute, earned an undergraduate degree in economics and environmental studies from the University of Toronto and his MA and Ph.D at the University of British Columbia. He was the author or editor of several books and scores of published papers on water-resource policy and economics.

He is survived by his brother David and his sisters Cathy and Elizabeth, his mother Mildred, his wife Diane Dupont and children Alexandra and Nicholas, and by countless friends and colleagues around the world.

A service to celebrate his life and work will be held in the spring. Donations should be made to Hospice Niagara in St. Catharines. Arrangements entrusted with Hulse & English funeral home, St. Catharines.
