After he returned from Europe at the end of WW2, he worked a brief time in Powell River, BC, where Mom and Larry were while he was overseas.  About 1946 (I’m not sure), they returned to Lindbergh and set up farming.  He worked for a brief time at the salt plant.  After a couple of years, he returned to work at the salt plant on a full-time basis.  In 1968, they sold the farm to Milton Lorenson and built a house in Riverview.  He worked with the maintenance department until the early 1970’s, until he had his first heart attack.  When he was able to return to work, they set him up as a supervisor in the production area.  He was there until his heart problems forced him to quit.
