LEWIS HUMISTON

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - OBITUARIES -

Saratoga Springs, NY: Lewis Humiston, age 75, passed away on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 13, 2019, in the lov­ing arms of those who cared for him at Mary’s Haven, Saratoga Springs, NY. He was born on March 21, 1944 in Fort Miller, NY to Earl Humiston and Eu­nice Flan­ders. Lewis didn’t like school very much, so he left school to be­gin his hard­work­ing ca­reer. He started work­ing in the or­chards haul­ing ap­ples and plant­ing and har­vest­ing veg­eta­bles. He then got a job in the pa­per mill where he made enough money to get his first car – a 1949 Chevy con­vert­ible even though he did not yet have a driver’s li­cense. At dif­fer­ent times, he was a dish­washer in Lake Ge­orge, a car­pen­ter, a painter, and a metal fab­ri­ca­tor at Tar­rant Man­u­fac­tur­ing in Saratoga Springs. In his own words, he was a jack of all trades, but mas­ter of none. Lewis spent a lot of time watch­ing wrestling, play­ing cards and horse­shoes. He en­joyed a good bar­be­cue and loved eat­ing ice cream. Lewis was a giv­ing man who often helped his friends if they needed a ride or money. One thing is for sure about Lewis, he was a good sto­ry­teller. Lewis is sur­vived by his lov­ing wife Wanda, his sons Lewis Humiston Jr. and Kevin Humiston, daugh­ters Tammy Cald­well and El­lie Prusin­ski (Stan­ley), step­sons Robert Gard­ner and Wil­liam Weather­wax, step­daugh­ters Charlotte Gard­ner and Mil­lie Weather­wax, his Brother Bucky, his Sis­ters Deb­bie Brownell (Frank) and Gail, and sev­eral grand­chil­dren as well as his beloved friend Pa­tri­cia Woodruff who was like a daugh­ter to him. He is pre­ceded in death by his par­ents, first wife, Au­drey Humiston, sec­ond wife, Eleanor Humiston and his Broth­ers John, Mike, and Denny Humiston. A fu­neral ser­vice will be held at 2:00 pm on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 21, 2019 at Com­pas­sion­ate Fu­neral Care, 402 Maple Av­enue, (Rte 9 and/or Mar­ion Ave.), Saratoga Springs, NY. Fam­ily and friends may call from 12:00 noon to 1:45 pm prior to the ser­vice at the fu­neral home. A burial will be planned for next spring.
