Alan M. Bayly, FCIA, FSA, spent 38 years in actuarial science with the London Life Insurance Co.

Born in 1916, he graduated from the University of Manitoba with a BSc (Honours) degree, and passed his first actuarial examination in 1937. After joining London Life, where he met his wife Helen, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force, serving as a fighter pilot and instructor during World War II.

He became a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries in 1949 and the CIA in 1965, and served on the CIA's Mortality Committee in the 1950s, and its Council in the 1960s. 

Described as a man of many interests, including reading, travel, music, and many sports, he retired early in 1976 and enrolled at the University of Western Ontario to study geology. He lost Helen in 1995, and was living in a retirement home in London, ON, at the time of his death in his ninety-sixth year.
