He later joined his wife, Joan's business, American Land Title Company, as the Vice-President of Finance.  He retired in 1989.

Doc was a member of Bozeman Lodge # 18 AF&AM.

Upon retirement, he spent his time gardening, fishing, rock collecting, travelling, and enjoying time with his grandchildren.

His parents, wife Joan, and two sisters, Margaret Parker and Helen Graslie, preceded him in death.
