: With deepest condolences

August 9, 2011

It is with great sadness that we advise that our dear friend and colleague D. Hayward Aiton, Q.C.  passed away yesterday following a courageous battle with cancer.

Called to the bar in 1969, Hayward enjoyed a distinguished career. A partner with the firm, and our predecessor firms, for almost 40 years, he became counsel to Stewart McKelvey in 2007. Universally respected by his colleagues and throughout the New Brunswick bar, Hayward was a renowned expert in real property law and widely acknowledged as a leader in this area, a person of remarkable talent and, most importantly, incomparable integrity.

We extend our deepest condolences to Hayward’s family. His keen sense of humour, sharp wit and wise counsel will be sorely missed.
