In 1963 Sam and Peggy moved to the Cariboo. They lived in
several places and eventually settled with their family on a
ranch at Green Lake.
Sam was a logger, trucker, and rancher. In 1969 he took up the
sport of pony chuck wagon racing. He had a life long passion
for the sport and enjoyed all aspects of it. Sam also enjoyed
being involved with the rodeo community including being a
pick up man and raising bucking bulls. Sam eventually sold
his ranch after the death of his wife Peggy in 2004. He moved
