Southard Quint has lived in Victoria since 1966. He had a career as a teacher in the Saanich School District where he was involved in volunteer opportunities and leadership roles. He particularly enjoyed directing the District Choir for several years.
In his forties, Southard’s hearing acuity was diminishing so hearing aids became necessary in order to function in the classroom. Dealing with hearing loss has been a persistent challenge for him over the past few decades.
In retirement Southard and Denise enjoy a wide range of recreational activities and travel. They have two children and a one-year old grandchild. Southard continues to enjoy his music and plays in a jazz trio.
