Bazil N. Lund


It is with deep sadness that the family of Bazil N. Lund announce his peaceful passing on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre. Bazil was born in Moncton, NB, son of the late Linus and Annie Lund. After graduating from Moncton High School, Bazil went to work with a maritime based beauty supply company, eventually becoming a shareholder and the company's president until his retirement. In 1954 he married the love of his life, Madge, and together they raised four daughters and five sons. Their focus was their family, complementing each other in providing for their children. We could not have asked for a better Dad. Bazil will be remembered for his love of life, positive attitude and high energy. He was a great supporter of his wife and children. In his younger years Bazil was involved in many sports, highlighted by playing short stop for the Dieppe Cardinals when they won the Maritime junior baseball title. As his children grew, he restarted his love for golf and got involved in owning Standardbred race horses, chasing around the Maritimes to watch them race. When it came time to head to P.E.I, for the races, a better day could not be had. His love for P.E.I, has been passed down to his children, who continue to enjoy summer vacations there. Bazil will be missed by his wife of sixty two years, Madge, his daughters Pamela, Donna (late Doug MacFadyen), Kathleen Oke (George), Elizabeth Smith (Richard), sons Gregory (Francine), David, Grant (Tammy), Paul (Corina) and Stuart (Jennifer) as well as grandchildren Stephen (Jodi), Christine, Brett, Katie, Sam, Alexa, Olivia, Patrick, Andrea, Cassandra, Joseph, and great grandchildren Annabelle and Roselyn. He is also survived by brothers Gerald (late Maureen), Ralph (Lavetta) and Elroy. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by sisters Beverley and Marie, brothers Urban, Walter, Harold, Peter and Cameron. There will be no visitation. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at Saint Augustine's Roman Catholic Church on Wednesday May 17, 2017, at 11:00 am with Father Allison Carroll presiding. Reception to follow. Interment will take place at Our Lady of Calvary cemetery at a later date. The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the dialysis unit of the Dr. Georges-L.- Dumont University Hospital Centre for the kindness and compassion shown to Bazil over the years. As well, they would like to extend their thanks to the nurses of 3E and palliative care.
