In 1901, he was living with his father.

On July 15, 1902, in Vancouver, Cecil married Eva Winifred (“Freda”) Stitt. She was born on December 23, 1874, in Ottawa, Ontario. Her father was John Roland Stitt (1847-1907), who was a merchant in Vancouver. Freda’s mother was Isabella Lay LeSeuer (1849-1932). (Freda’s sister was Norah Eileen Stitt (1892-1969), who married Ewart Vincent Munn (1892-1979). Ewart was the son of Albert Edward Munn, who lived at 1966 Nelson Street from 1914 to 1917.)

Before her marriage, Freda worked as a clerk at the Dominion Post Office. One of the wedding gifts was a silver tea service from the staff of the post office.

After the wedding, Cecil and Freda went on a honeymoon trip. When they returned, they moved to 1950 Haro Street.

They lived in this house until about 1911. Later they were at 1135 West 13th Avenue and at 2377 West Marine Drive.

Cecil died in Vancouver on October 10, 1939. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Freda died in Vancouver on March 29, 1968.

Eva never married. She died in Richmond, British Columbia, on June 8, 1962. She was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.
