Blank began homesteading and in 1914 his wife Louise came to Canada to join him. At this time Richard Blank was working for the Canadian National Railway. In 1923 Richard and Louise Blank left their homestead and bought a farm. Louise Blank died in October 1955 at the age of 74 and Richard Blank died in November 1964 at the age of 85.
