From there, he worked for Okanagan Telephone and then Okanagan Motors in Vernon. He then moved back to Canoe where he worked at Federated Co-op Mill helping build the plywood plant and was a Millwright until retiring.

He was an active member of many clubs in the area. He loved to hunt and fish and will be missed by all that knew him.
