Y&R/ATWT Alum Paul Leyden Suffers Heartbreaking Family Loss!

Y&R/ATWT alum, Paul Leyden mourns the loss of a beloved family member. Read more here--->>





Former soap star, Paul Leyden is mourning the loss of his father, James Barry Leyden aka "Big Johnny". His father passed away peacefully in the arms of his wife, Roslyn on December 12, 2019, after a battle with a degenerate illness called MSA. 

In a lengthy Instagram post with a collage of pictures featuring his father, he wrote: This year life gave me my beautiful daughter, RaphaĆ«lle, but in maintaining its ledger it also just decided to take my dear, old Dad. He passed away yesterday. Known to my mates as Big Johnny, Dad passed peacefully in the arms of his wife and my Mum, Roslyn. They shared 50 years of marriage together. Dad had been battling a degenerative illness, MSA, that had been misdiagnosed for many years and it finally got the better of him. I will always remember my dad, John James Barry Leyden as a big personality. He never missed one of our sporting games growing up and always barracked the loudest. He supported every decision we made, encouraged us tirelessly and sacrificed everything for family. He simply loved his wife and kids beyond anything. He was a master story teller and a maestro joke teller. He was the very personification of #dadjokes. Every trophy we got went straight to the pool room. Every milestone achieved was celebrated, exalted, framed and decorated with a brass corner. In the last year, Dad was not doing so great. I am beyond grateful he was able to make it to Switzerland last year to see me marry the love of my life and then meet my baby girl in Australia only two months ago. Dad, I will miss you dearly and I can only hope to love and cherish my own family as much as you loved and cherished your own. Have a cocktail or three with our girl, Kate and sit back, relax, knowing that you achieved the one thing that meant the most to you - to be a great Dad. And if there is any justice the Melbourne Storm will bring it home for you next year. I love you me ‘ol China and I’ll miss the shit out of you!

Soap Opera News send our love to Leyden and his family during this sad time. Leyden is known for playing Simon Frasier on As the World Turns, Warren 'Waza' Edwards on Home and Away and Blake Joseph on The Young and the Restless.
