Conflicts with local residents and the arson of a logging bridge saw the family relocate to Pemberton in 1976 where they continued logging operations. David Valleau (63) died as a result of single vehicle accident in 2007 on the South Creek forestry road. Valleau Logging Ltd. closed soon afterwards.
