Jay Milton ‘Milt’ Johner

May 8, 1934 – August 9, 2020
Milt has gone on his final fishing trip. He left peacefully, with family at his side, just in time for the afternoon bite.
Missing him are his wife of 58 years, Evelyn, and their children Marla (Ron), Jarl (Linda) and Russell (Jennifer), as well as his five grandchildren, Amanda, Erica, Emily, Jarl Louis, and Alessandra. He is survived by his brother Jarl (Charlene) and sister Ella Mae (Garth), and sister-in-law Irene.
He was predeceased by his parents Jarl and Mary, his stepfather Allan, his sister Pearl, and in-laws Alice, Percy, Vera, Fin, Les and Shirley. Among his numerous family and friends waiting to catch up on things with him is Bob M., a friend of 77 years.
Milt always had time to lend a hand if you needed it, and come up with a solution to wiggle out of a jam. He was always willing to share his knowledge with anyone who wanted to learn.
Fishing was his passion and he and Evelyn spent many years at various lakes, rivers and on the ocean after all manner of fish. Our fondest memories are of the annual family camping trips/fishing derbies, where friends and family would gather at a recreation site near a lake to be together, catch some fish and have fun.
He always said he had a great life and was thankful for all his family and friends, all his experiences.
