The family later moved to Leavenworth where he went to work at the Mill in Peshastin. Jack met and later was married to Dorothy Ann Deach on September 28, 1948 at Coeur d’Alene. Jack drove truck for the warehouse in Leavenworth where he hauled coal to the schoolhouses. He began driving a produce truck between Mountlake Terrace and Los Angeles.
