Judge Edward Bayda of Canada and Montserrat has passed

A release from the family of Justice Edward Bayda who for many years owned and spent much time in a home at Lime Kiln in Olveston, Montserrat, said: “It is with profound sadness that the family of Justice Edward Bayda S.O.M., LL.D., Q.C., of Lime Kiln, announces his passing.“

Judge Bayda was born in Saskatchewan, Canada on September 9, 1931 and died suddenly of pneumonia on April 2, 2010 in Izmir, Turkey while on holiday there.

Judge Bayda is survived by his beloved wife, Lorraine, two of his three sisters, 7 children, 22 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren.

A state funeral was held for Judge Bayda on April 10, 2010 in Canada.  Judge Bayda was Saskatchewan’s longest-serving Chief Justice, and led the court with distinction during years of major economic, social, and demographic change. Of particular significance, shortly after his appointment as chief justice, courts were asked to breathe life into the newly minted Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Under his leadership and with many perceptive judgments penned by him, his court played an important role in defining the fundamental rights of Canadian citizens which are enshrined in the Charter.

Throughout his life, Judge Bayda remained true to his small-town roots — a down-to-earth man, approachable and convivial. He had a soft heart and a gentle spirit, coupled with a steely determination to pursue those things he thought to be right.  Through his love of the human spirit, he frequently engaged in conversation with people from all walks of life. His infectious, gregarious laugh brought genuine joy to all.

The Judge  loved Montserrat, and was devoted to his friends and adopted Montserratian family members.

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at the Catholic Church in Salem at 5:00 p.m.

The family invites all. “All are welcome.”
