Following this he worked for many years with Melchin Car Transport. He then went farming in the Raven District on Jensen family land. He ended his working career with a stint of automotive sales with cousin Dwayne Lundgren in Innisfail. His retirement was centered around participation with wife Marie in Holiday Ranch activities (Kevisville) and annual trips to Arizona. He enjoyed music, dancing, hunting, fishing, fastball at Kevisville and sports on television. He treasured daily coffee at the A & W with sister Marie once he moved to Innisfail to allow his heart some rest and care.
