The 1940 winner was John Arthur Siggers (1905-1968). He was married to Nancy Evelyn (Duckett) (Smith) Siggers (1912-2006) in Burnaby in 1938. The couple resided at 6890 Gray Avenue, Burnaby (formerly 2343 Gray Avenue). John's death certificate lists his occupation as "Gardner - Nursery Man". Nancy also worked in the gardening business and the couple were frequent entrants and winners in flower shows around the Lower Mainland. The 1941 winner was likely Herman Ludwig Kay (1890-1967). He was married to Dorothy Harriet Mary (Jackson) Kay (1890-1965). An H.L.

In addition to flowers, Herman also cultivated award winning raspberries, apples, scarlet runner beans, and other vegetables.
