Baden Langton (QRZ lists a Baden Langton in Ontario with callsign VE3DLF) was fond of saying he had a lucky life.

The Brantford native made it big in broadcasting as one of several early co-anchors of CTV National News with prominent Canadian journalist Peter Jennings, who later joined Langton at ABC News in the United States.

He was a dedicated family man, a self-taught musician, a teacher, an avid snorkeler and scuba diver, a great cook, an amateur radio operator, and an avid reader with an innate curiosity about life.
