RONALD HENRY MILTON

October 29, 1922 – January 23, 2009

Ron, born in East London, worked in the family grocery business until called to serve in 1942 with the British 8th Army. As an infantry man and wireless operator he fought with the 78th division, Royal West Kent Regiment in North Africa, Sicily and Italy. After the war he continued to serve in Vienna and London until his discharge in 1947. He ran a general store and cafe in Blackfen until he moved to Ontario in 1957. His sisters, Iris and Vera, felt he was a “great brother” and they missed him dearly when he left for Canada. He continued in retail for a while but eventually became a civil servant working for Ontario Housing, Ontario Corrections and the Queen Street Mental Health Centre. He and his wife Joan moved to Salt Spring in 1991 in order to join his son Derrick and his family. Ron, always full of laughter

had a great love for history, music, dancing, animals, travel and his family.
