1932 - 2014 HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. On Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014, William "Wade" Hayden, 81, was called to Heaven. He was a native of Hoosick Falls, born on June 27, 1932, and the son of John Joseph and Eleanor Wade Hayden. Wade was a graduate of St. Mary's Academy (1950), and SUNY Cobleskill (1956). He went on to serve his country during the Korean War, 1951-53, as a Private First Class in the United States Army. On Aug. 20, 1955, he married his beloved wife and companion Sandra J. Curtice.

Wade was a charter member of the Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery Honor Guard Association which was formed in July 1999. Wade has been the squad leader of the Thursday burials since the formation of the Honor Guard Association. His patriotism and love for his country was undying and remained the core of his character.
