Upon cancellation of the Avro project he returned to Nova Scotia to run the woodworking/metal shop in the Biology Dept at Dalhousie University. His great ingenuity and willingness to help was appreciated by many, and he took pleasure in later years tinkering and repairing in his own workshop. He reminisced often about his trip across Canada and north to Inuvik. He loved dogs, playing cards and socializing; he enjoyed being a member of the St Margaret's Bay Whitecaps.
