A few years later he moved to Flin Flon, MB and started to work as a hard rock miner for HBM&S. This was the job he loved and worked till the day he retired.

In his younger years Bill enjoyed snowmobiling, curling, waterskiing, hunting deer and moose, camping and fishing at Jan Lake and Bakers Narrows with family, in his later years he took up golfing. During the summer he would golf everyday with his buddies. When he was in Esterhazy visiting family, Bill was always up for a round of golf with his wife, sister, brother-in-law, nephews and could be seen golfing on one of the courses in the area.

Bonnie met Bill when she returned to Flin Flon for a visit. They became a couple soon after. Bill was a great father to Bonnie's son Chris along with being a great Dad to his daughter Julie.

Over the years Bill and his wife Bonnie spent time travelling to Florida visiting and golfing with his sister and brother-in-law. Spending the winter months in Osoyoos, BC golfing and visiting with sister-in-law Cheryl. Bill and Bonnie travelled to Europe for a holiday to visit the community in Wales where his dad was born and grew up, and they visited friends and family in England.
