Roland Huyck, 90, of Treadwell, NY, died on September 29, following a lengthy battle with breathing issues.

Roland, who was more often called ‘Gramp’, ‘Doe’, ‘Pop Pop’ and ‘Joe’, was born in 1929 in Michigan. His parents, Clarence and Irene Huyck, moved their family to Treadwell when Doe was very young. Doe graduated from the A.O. Kellogg School in Treadwell.

Doe married Jackie Havens in 1950, a love story renewed today. Together they raised two children, Perry (Jan) Huyck, and Darlene (Steve) Hissong who brought them five grandchildren and eight great grandchildren, who they treasured. In their retirement years, they travelled the world and enlarged their already wide circle of close friends.

A hardworking dairy farmer, Gramp took great pride in the farm that he and Jackie nurtured over the years. He was happiest when the day called for extensive tractor work, after which he could look back at a plowed field, or wagons full of hay. Once he could no longer drive the tractors, Gramp was the field general patrolling the fields in his beloved Kubota. He was quick to share advice to enhance the skills of the younger family members. Gramp was a wizard when it came to backing a hay wagon, breaking down a tire, and so many other real life, practical things a farmer learns along the way.

No calling hours will be held, though a celebration of the lives of Doe and Jackie will be planned for next summer. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Treadwell Emergency Squad.

Long ago, Doe was Forman of the Dela Co Grand Jury. After I prepared the Indictments in Sidney I would drive to Delhi via Treadwell, stop at the farm and walk out in the hayfield, where Doe would stop his tractor and sign them for me for filing. We've been good friends ever since. Went to West Point to a football game, played bridge all over the county and sometimes just hung out. My world and the world in general is a better place because he spent some time here. He will be missed.

I always enjoyed working on the baler and other machinery and then having fresh baked pie. My thoughts are with you.

To the Huyck family, I am so sorry for your loss. I am thankful and honored to have great memories of Jackie and Doe from the years that I spent as a tenant there. I will cherish these forever. I hope that you will take comfort in knowing how very proud they were of all of you. I can see them now riding together on the Kubota and sitting at the counter enjoying their dinner with desert being a fresh baked pie. Cherish the memories and may they carry you through the dark days. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
