Both he and Bonnie loved the area and enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing, and rock hounding. They also spent much of their time traveling around the United States and visited Sandy’s ancestral home in Norway. After Bonnie’s death Sandy moved to Georgia to be closer to his family but he always missed Idaho and the friends he had there, particularly at Faith Lutheran Church.
