During their years in York Beach, they always supported York High School and all of its music and sports teams and York Beach Police and Fire departments. Walter was a baseball umpire at the local Smith Field for several years while Gerry worked as a real estate agent in York. They worked together as a successful team running the Long Sands Store and would host large family holiday gatherings in their home above the store. They attended sporting events, locally in York, as well as enjoying the Boston Bruins and Boston Red Sox games. They enjoyed traveling to Florida every year for family vacations.
After selling their store on Long Sands in 1987, Walter and Gerry moved to Flagler Beach, Florida and enjoyed the semi-retirement life, living at a beautiful oceanfront home. They both worked part-time to keep busy while enjoying the warm seasons in Florida. They enjoyed the numerous visits from family and friends throughout the years and enjoyed trips to the theme parks in Orlando and the Daytona races until moving back to New England and residing in Vernon, CT in 1999, to be closer to family and friends. They would take day trips throughout the year and still vacation in the spring and fall seasons to continue enjoying York Beach with family and friends
