Pa loved his wife Betsy very much. When she was killed by a tornado that struck without a warning siren, he was devastated.
Pa helps the Canute meteorology team in 2010. Scott Varnell, the leader of the Canute Storm Chasers team, and Brooke Tavanah, the leader of the rival chase team at Kingston University, often come into the store to ask about each other.
- Pa acts in the plays at the Grange Theater. He plays Percy Rutherford Hardcastle in a play they're doing about their small town from a long time ago to today. Percy was the sheriff a long while ago, and the area's first librarian.
