They were married in 1951, and settled in Burnaby to raise their family. Milt loved nature – especially birds, animals, and tending to his garden. He loved travelling with Betty and spending time at their recreational property in their retirement years. He also enjoyed cheering (and sometimes cursing) his favourite sports teams: the Canucks, Lions and Bluejays. Milton was a proud member of Royal Canadian Legion for over 60 years.
