Raymond spent 4 years in the RCAF as a wireless operator. Upon graduation from wireless school he was stationed at Prince Rupert, transferred to Boundary Bay, then to Charlottetown.
Bud enjoyed many years in civilian life as a Canada Safeway Manager in Vancouver. He made some wonderful friends and later made a transition over to the Insurance business where he opened up Greenwood Insurance. He sold his agency, and retired to work for Doctors and Dentists, managing apartment buildings in Whiterock. He spent 10 wonderful years there. He then moved to Maple Ridge to be closer to his family.
One of his favourite pastimes, was to get into the motorhome with Grace, and they would travel the country with their good friends Ray and Maureen McElgunn.
