After 30 years at Idaho Concrete, he went into the antique business until retirement.

In 1945 his brother Robert and him made a bus trip to Idaho to see their grandparents and they spent the summer working in the fields, this created a desire to move to Idaho, for the hunting and fishing and exploring the old mining towns and camps of southwest Idaho.
