Fred and Alice took over the homestead east of Pincher Creek from her parents, in 1957. Then Fred became a farmer, working alongside Alice and his three children, raising livestock and growing crops.

He also enjoyed his miniature donkeys and watching the birds at the feeders outside his kitchen window. Crib was a favorite pastime for Fred and many games were played around the kitchen table at the farm. He had a way with children, and especially loved spending time with his grandkids and his new great-grandson.
