Bud and Helen were married in September of 1952 and resided in the town of Selkirk, MB where he worked at the Selkirk Mental Hospital as a Psychiatric Nurse and raised their family. In later years, he continued his career with Skills Unlimited in Winnipeg where he assisted in the rehabilitation of mentally challenged adults. He was an avid hunter, water skier, loved camping but his greatest passion was flying. He shared that experience with anyone who was willing to go up for a flight with him. Eventually that led him to volunteer for Search and Rescue with the Winnipeg Flying Club and later with the Penticton Flying Club. In his retirement, he was able to maneuver a flight simulation program on his computer and enjoyed flying from the comfort of his home.
