SARATOGA SPRINGS – Leydon J. “Lad” Hemsworth, age 77, in God’s providential care went home to be with his Lord on Saturday, July 4, 2020 at his home in Saratoga Springs.
He was born on October 22, 1942 in Staten Island, NY, the son of the late William Laurence Hemsworth and Margaret Farrell Hemsworth.
Leydon was a devoted family man and a loving husband, father, and grandfather. An entrepreneur and business owner, he spent over 40 years in the computer and technology industry. He was a dedicated member of Gateway Church for over 35 years, spending much of his free time volunteering in the church and acting as a trustee. He enjoyed traveling the world with his wife, studying history, reading impossibly large non-fiction books, and tracing his Irish ancestry. He will be remembered for his loving, gentle nature, faith in God, strong sense of humor, and gift of exaggeration…we mean storytelling.
Leydon is survived by his wife Diane Hemsworth of 54 years, his children Audra (Dave) Cava, Patrick (Donna) Hemsworth, Stephen (Alyx) Hemsworth, his grandchildren, Julia, Marianna, Jonathan, Ryan, Leydon, Gavin, and Liam, his sister, Ann Burger, brother, William Hemsworth, and sister-in law, Marie Hemsworth.
He is preceded in death by his parents, brother, Laurence Hemsworth, and granddaughter, Gabrielle Cava.
Calling hours will be from 12-2pm, directly followed by a funeral service at 2pm, on Saturday, July 11 at Compassionate Care Funeral Care, 402 Maple Avenue (Rt 9), Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
A Memorial Service in Staten Island will be held on July 25, 2020 at Gateway Church, 200 Boscombe Avenue, Staten Island, NY 10309. Please register with the below link in advance to attend the Gateway service.
