After they were married, they spent some time living in Edinburgh while he finished his tour, and he immigrated to Canada in 1966. They settled in Moose Jaw and he worked briefly for the Moose Jaw City Police before moving to Vancouver for a few years, ultimately returning to Moose Jaw where he was a Moose Jaw City Police officer until he retired in 1999.
