Archie made Shawville his home in 1973 and became an active member of the community. He was a long-time member of the Shawville RA. For 29 years, Archie worked at the Shawville Arena and always got to enjoy many hockey games during his working hours.
Although Archie missed his home and family in Newfoundland, he always made time to visit often. This was always his happy place by the sea.
