While continuing to farm, Emery returned to Radec from 1976 until his retirement in 1992. Through his work with Radec Construction, Emery built numerous schools, churches, hospitals and other facilities. In retirement Emery continued doing contract construction for people in the Hartington area and provided maintenance work for L & L Pork.
