Also, sister Glynis Danielson and brother-in-law Charles Swanson along with many nieces and nephews. Millen met Mona in Binscarth and married in 1958. In 1966 they moved with their three kids to Winnipeg. A Strong believer in 4H, he participated in his younger years and still supported in his later years. Millen loved all types of livestock, especially cattle. As well he was an accomplished trainer and handler of retrievers. He was asked to judge the National Retriever championship. Millen took great pride in watching his grandkids and great-grandkids in their sports, 4H beef clubs and cattle shows. Having many years of experience with cattle, Millen passed along many tips of the trade to his grandkids and great grandkids. Millen's greatest pride was his family. Millen loved the farm and with Mona they moved to Brookdale onto her family farm. In 1998, Dallas and family moved to the farm with Millen and Mona moving to Neepawa in 2006.
