Douglas's passions included membership in the Oddfellows Lodge and Ham Radio Operators (he built his own key and radio). He also enjoyed golfing, cards and woodworking. Both Grace and Douglas were active members of the McKenzie United Church. Grace assisted in CGIT and Sunday school and was 25 years with the Thrift shop; Douglas was a Steward, Elder and treasurer.
Grace owns their farm and lives in Portage la Prairie. She still has the piano her mother brought from Elora, Ontario at the time of her wedding in 1913.
