After returning home he worked in several trades until he found his niche working for Tretolite as a chemical salesman in Ness City, Kansas.

Prior to his work injury Grover was very active and enjoyed golfing, boating, hunting, traveling and spending time with his children. Upon retirement Grover and Karen continued to reside in Burlington and Grover frequently worked part time selling automobiles and driving semi-trucks during harvest.
