He served as box Elder county treasurer for eight years before retiring in 1967. In Bear River City LaGrande served as clerk for his LDS (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) ward, town clerk and secretary of the Bear River Democratic Party.

He was stationed in Camp Crowder, Missouri; Omaha, Nebraska; Camp Edwards, Massachusetts; and North Africa.

While living in Heber, Helen married LaGrande Peterson on May 24th of 1942. Shortly after their marriage LaGrande was drafted for World War II. After the war they moved to Bear River City where she was a teacher until 1966 when she retired. After retiring she became an active member in the Bear River camp of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers. Helen was also an active member of the Brigham City branch of the American Association of University Women; she served in all offices except president. She passed away on February 21, 1990 in Brigham City, Utah and was buried in Bear River City, Utah.
