On June 9, 2020, James Buday Sr. passed away at the Brierwood Gardens Retirement Residence, in his 97th year. Beloved husband of Julia for 69 years. He will be lovingly remembered by his daughters, Julie Horvath (Peter), Helen Lemieux (Bill), son, James, his 4 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.

He was born in Yugoslavia and immigrated to Canada at the age of 13. Through hard work and a shrewd mind, he built a successful life in tobacco and real estate. As a fierce competitor, James was a great pool and court shuffleboard player. He enjoyed spending many retired winters in Florida with his wife. Was a faithful and active member of Blessed Sacrament Parish in Burford, for many years.

We would like to thank Friede Lammel and her Brierwood Gardens staff for the care and compassion extended to James and his family. Thank you also to the LHIN health support staff. Our appreciation to Dr. McNeil.

Dad, you will be remembered, missed and loved by your family.

There will be a private family service at Keith Ovington Funeral Home, 134 King Street Burford. If you choose, as expressions of sympathy, you may make a charitable donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in his memory. Keith Ovington 519-449-1112.

Dear Julie & family: I am so sorry to hear of your loss of your Dad. No doubt, the last time I saw your parents was many, many years ago when we all were teenagers and schoolmates. What a blessing that you had your father through all these years. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.
Blessings to you all,
Rosemary (Larmour) Godin
