NASSAU, The Bahamas -- A State Recognized Funeral was held for the Hon. Mr. Justice (Retired) Emmanuel E. Osadebay at St. Agnes Anglican Church, Baillou Hill Road, on Friday, September 13, 2019. Interment was at St. Agnes Cemetery.

"Justice of Appeal Osadebay had the distinction of serving The Bahamas at three different levels of the Judiciary; as the Stipendiary and Circuit Magistrate, a Justice of the Supreme Court and a Justice of Appeal.  He also practiced at the private Bar with distinction for several years after leaving the Magistracy pro to his appointment to the Supreme Court Bench in February, 1994."

"Justice Osadebay was an astute artist.  His written Judgements are lucid and instructive and collectively they will serve as a fitting memorial to his commendable work as a member of the Judiciary.  Justice Osadebay was well known as a leading Authority on Labour Law and the author of the highly acclaimed book, "Labour Law in The Bahamas." He  was a mentor of many Bahamians who are involved in Industrial Relations, Labour/Employment Law and Contractual Negotiations."

"We who know Justice Osadebay will fondly remember his lively and agile intellect, his judicial temperament and his engaging personality."

"On behalf of all members and staff of the Judiciary I wish to extend condolences to Dr Emily Osadebay, his daughters, Jacqueline, Jeunesse and Janelle and the grandchildren and other family members both here in the Bahamas, England and Nigeria," said Brian M. Moree QC, Chief Justice, Commonwealth of The Bahamas.
