BAINES, Edgar William Baines   -  1934 - 2023

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Edgar Baines at Lakeridge Health Hospital in Ajax, Ontario, on January 16, 2023.


Ed was in his 88th year and, after a series of health issues, he finally succumbed and passed peacefully in his sleep with family at his bedside.

Loving partner of Lila Levy and devoted father of Mark Baines (Laurie). Lovingly remembered by sister Jackie and her family. Proud Grandpa of Bob (Sara), Mackenzie (Nolan), Michael (Miriam), and Brian (Megan). Great Grandpa to Sienna, Emi and Atom. Predeceased by his parents, Oz and Bernice and step-children Glen and Susie (Bill).

Ed was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario and moved to Toronto to pursue his career in teaching. He was a teacher and then Vice-Principal at various elementary schools and was well loved by staff and students alike.

Ed’s warm heart, kind and infectious smile, and his love of life will be deeply missed by his family and friends. We love and miss you, Ed! Special thanks to their caregivers Sara, Marah, Alison, and Rebecca for their support and compassion for Ed and his family.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ed’s memory to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada.


At his request, cremation has taken place.  A Celebration of Life will be held for family and friends at a later date.
