He moved his business to Stony Plain, where he bought and lived on a farm west of Stony Plain, where he grew potatoes, raspberries and saskatoons. He enjoyed music, pottery, old songs, exploring old coal mines, trains, crossword puzzles, and had an extensive collection of old records, light bulbs and antique radios.
