We have received word that Loren Humeny has passed away recently after being diagnosed with cancer and battling the disease for a while. Loren was the social worker charged with the responsibilities associated with the Paul and Zabeth Bayne case which occupied so much attention for over four years as they sought to recover custody of their children.

I had one private conversation with him in the hallway of the Chilliwack courthouse building as we waited for the court case to begin. I learned then, that this man was a family man and a community man and there were aspects of his job with which he was uncomfortable. I became certain then that he did not like being typecast as a villain.

I am saddened to hear of his death and I am sorry for his family's loss of someone whom they loved.
