Born at Cobourg, Ontario on 12 January 1899, son of Richard David Muton, he came to Winnipeg around 1915 and worked for the real estate firm of W. J. Christie and Company, rising in time to become its Vice-President and General Manager. In 1917, he interrupted his employment to enlist in the Canadian Expeditionary Force, serving overseas with the Fort Garry Horse. He returned to Canada after being wounded at the battle of Amiens in August 1918. His military involvement continued between the two World Wars and he was made a Member of the British Empire. On 14 January 1928, he married Constance Carrie “Connie” Cooper (?-?) at Winnipeg. They had no children. He was President of the Winnipeg Real Estate Board, Commodore of the Winnipeg Canoe Club (1934), President of the Canukeena Club (1937-1938), and a member of the Masons (Prince Rupert Chapter), Khartum Shriners, Royal Canadian Legion, Granite Curling Club, River Heights Lawn Bowling Club, and St. Matthews Anglican Church.
