They raised two children, a daughter Joanne (Pincher Creek), and a son Blaine who continues the farming operation west of Granum.  

Alf was very passionate about the farm and ranch. He built a lasting legacy to pass onto his family. He loved the sport of hockey and was an avid hockey player. Alf played for Granum, Fort Macleod Broncs, Claresholm Clippers and the Foothills Oldtimers.

Alf supported and was actively involved with whatever Joanne and Blaine chose to do.  Upon the arrival of grandchildren, Alf enjoyed their sports and activities and most recently enjoyed the great-grandchildren and their activities.
