Later he played the trombone in the Unley Symphony Orchestra and competed in Ballarat competitions. He played for the silent movies at the picture theatre on Goodwood Road, Daws Park. He was also a most competent gardener and showed Dahlias for many years when he lived at Forest Gardens. He organized orchestras to play for Sunday School anniversaries in many Protestant churches in the Southern and Western District of Adelaide and conducted rehearsals with them. He was a keen golfer and bowler until he retired from these because of arthritis in his 80s. he was a steward and auditor for the Methodist (Uniting) Church and collected every year for the Bible Society even when he was in his 80s. He was an impeccably honest man and a thorough gentleman.
