Wilbrod was born in Quebec City, Quebec on October 22, 1875. In 1912, he filed on SW 16-78-21-W5 on NE 5-78-21-W5. Wilbrod first enlisted in the Canadian Army on February 8, 1915; however, he was discharged, having been found medically unfit. On August 1, 1916, he enlisted a second time and this time was sent overseas. Wilbrod suffered from gunshot wounds to his left arm in November of 1917, and to his right thigh in August of 1918. He developed a very painful sciatic nerve, likely due to climatic conditions. Wilbrod died on August 19, 1957.
