GUILDERLAND — The man who “was the farm,” according to his family, died on April 17, 2015, after a long battle to recover from a stroke. He was 85.

John Hauf Gade Jr., better known as Jack, the long-time, third-generation owner of Gade Farm, “loved his family and the farm, and the two were inextricably linked throughout his lifetime,” wrote his family in a tribute.

“The focus of our life has been Guilderland, forever,” said Mr. Gade’s sister, Nancy Hollomon.
