Gordon and Liz remained on the farm and actively farmed till 2012 when they passed over the control of the farm to his sons David and Greg. Although Gordon was retired, he still maintained the farm yard to a very high standard and of course he was always there to provide some consulting!

Gordon was active in many clubs including the Swift Current Curling Club where he was local president, Saskatchewan Curling Association regional director and represented his club in districts and provincial competitions. Gordon also enjoyed golf playing in many Club and Cattleman tournaments as well as his weekly MOB early morning rounds with his golf buddies. Gordon was also very involved with the Swift Current Frontier Exhibition Board where he was a director and ran the light horse show at the annual fair for many years.

Gordon and Liz were very proud to be part of the local Good Sams RV club where they met and still maintain a very close friendship with fellow campers. They especially enjoyed, participated, and in a lot of cases organized jamborees with other Good Sam Clubs in RV parks scattered throughout the province.

Gordon and Liz were also able to utilize their many fifth wheel travel trailers and motorhomes to spend 17 years travelling in the winter firstly to Texas and then Yuma, Arizona meeting up with many friends from the Swift Current area but also creating many more friendships through park activities and of course those happy hours! Even with their love for the snowbird life, Gordon and Liz also managed to find adventure in taking trips to Australia and Alaska creating many good memories.
