Beryl Isaac was born in British Columbia, moved with his family to many places in interior BC, Alberta, and finally to Nova Scotia. He worked with his father in a welding shop, owned and operated forestry machines in Nova Scotia and then northern British Columbia, and eventually realized that his skills were in the area of diagnosing and repairing equipment. He challenged the Red Seal Heavy Duty Equipment Technician test, got his certificate, and continued repairing and maintaining machinery. In 2015 he moved to Steinbach, Manitoba, and pursued his calling here. He loves the challenge of finding obscure and difficult problems and figuring out how they can be fixed.
