He went to work for his father-in-law in the logging industry, eventually going to work driving logging trucks for Clark and Lacey for 20 years, then drove cement trucks for Clarks Redi Mix for another 20 years. Dad took an active roll with us kids coaching Little League Baseball and Minor Hockey. Dad never went in the lake but spent hours sitting at old Rotary Beach watching us kids. He loved camping and fishing and taking his grandchildren, teaching them to fish and letting them run the boat. A graveside service was held at Canyon View Cemetery in Summerland BC.
