There was another newspaper article that said they were married at the old Victoria Citadel (Salvation Army Church) at Broad Street and Pandora which I believe what happened rather than North Park Street The marriage took place at 3:00 by Commandant Jaynes of the Salvation Army. Ruth wore a traveling suit of navy blue and hat to match. She was given away by her father and was attended by her sister Catherine Law. The groom was supported by Joseph Law.

     He was in the automotive business all his life. He used to ride motorcycles but gave it up because Ruth didn't like him to ride. He worked at Begg Motors for years and was let go when things slowed up. He had a car from a very young age, when cars were still little heard of. He had two gas stations, one was Esso on Cadboro Bay Road (by Oak Bay High) and the other was Boundary B.A. He worked with a man called Mr. Burley ( he was his partner). After he retired he gave unwillingly of his time to drive his wife and other people to various appointments. He was the bandmaster of the Esquimalt Band, Salvation Army, for 50 years. The Esquimalt band got a lot of its instruments from the disbanding Victoria West Fireman's Band. When June was a child and cried and cried he would walk the floor with her. He played marbles with Tracey as a child and got down on the floor with her. He loved army music and music of any kind. He enjoyed gardening. He was a very gentle and kind man.
