After a lengthy career as a Manager in the lumber industry in the Lower Mainland he retired to New Brunswick.

He continued his interest in all sports, enjoyed cribbage, festive game planning and delighted in fine dining. He also enjoyed relaxing in a big yellow chair on the dock by the cottage. Verle will be remembered most for his love of family.
