After his return, Sonny was employed by the C.P.R. Railway, retiring after twenty-six years of service. His retirement was to be short-lived as he soon found himself employed with the Royal Canadian Legion as Head Steward, a position he held for the next five years. His reputation for hard work soon spread through the community and when the Travelodge was built it was not long before General Manager Fred Amman asked Sonny to work for them, which he did for nine and a half years. During this time Sonny spent evenings teaching a Mixology/Hospitality Class at the Medicine Hat College. After he retired, Sonny managed the Medicine Hat Golf and Country Club and was instrumental in the erection of their new clubhouse. Sonny's friendly, outgoing nature made him the centre of attention while working as a Director of the Alberta Golf Association. Board members respected his well-formed opinions and competitive spirit. He was always a favorite playing partner during A.G.A. gatherings and all Alberta golfers have benefited from his commitment and dedication to the sport in this province. Even with all his work and late hours Sonny was a devoted husband and father. He has made a positive impression on all who knew him. Sonny Collins will be remembered with gratitude for who he was and all he did.
