Milton WRIGHT

(Nov. 6, 1930 – Jan. 5, 2008)

Known as Milt to friends and family alike, he passed away peacefully at his home on January 5, 2008.

He will be missed by his daughter Laura, his son David, and daughter-in-law Glenna, his ex-wife Joan Donaldson, his grandson Christopher Brewin, cousins Dale and Jeannie, his many nieces and nephews and his dear friend Jackie MacDonald.

Milt’s life seemed destined for public consumption. He began teaching in the early ‘50’s, became a radio operator then moved to television. 1960 took him to Ottawa where he worked as Design Director for CBC until taking on the task of Managing Director with the Calgary Allied Arts Centre.

A trip to Australia brought him back to the westcoast where he finished his teaching degree at the University of Victoria in 1973.

Belmont was his first school and he retired some 20 years later from Spectrum in Victoria. He was justly proud of his accomplishments: his Masters degree, the many musicals he produced, and most of all the many students he helped along the way… to many of these he was just “Uncle Milty”.

Retirement took him to Chilliwack B.C. where he spent the last nine years with his beloved Papillon Pal.

Milt will be remembered by the many students he taught; by the many hearts he touched in his life and the many friends he made at Cottonwood Estates.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
