After serving in the United States Air Force as a pilot during World War II, Ferris returned to Provo, Utah and worked at US Steel Corporation in Orem, Utah for 32 years as an electrician prior to retiring. His interest in baseball and basketball resulted in many hours of practicing and coaching his two sons Randy and Larry. The tradition carried down to his grand children and great grand children. Ferris enjoyed watching the younger generation play and giving them tips on how to improve their game.
Ferris enjoyed traveling with his wife Ruth and LeGrande and Dorothy Young. They enjoyed many happy times together. He spent time gardening and enjoying Ruth's and his cats Goofuss and Buttons. The cats were kings and queens of the house.
