Richard 'Dick' D. Maddern

Richard “Dick” D. Maddern, age 72, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, December 26, 2011, at his residence. He was born in Hurley, WI, September 8, 1939, son of the late Clayton and Hilma (Nee: Waldros) Maddern.

Dick proudly served in the United States Navy stationed on the USS Rich. On June 18, 1960, in North Carolina he was united in marriage to Sandra E. Pittman. Dick was employed by S.C. Johnson Wax and J.I. Case Company, and retired from the City of Kenosha working in maintenance. He was actively involved with the New Day Drum and Bugle Corps and served as President. He enjoyed fishing, oil painting, visits to the casino, and was a huge Packer fan. More than anything he cherished time spent with his family and will be dearly missed.

Survivors include his loving wife of fifty-one years, Sandra; his daughters, Debra Marie Maddern and Mary Gail Scypta, Leslie (Stanley) Patton; his three grandchildren, Taylor Maddern, Deandre Patton, Ashlynn Maddern; brothers, Gary (Sue) Maddern, Dan (Diane) Maddern; brother-in-law, Kenneth Pittman; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many dear friends. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Marlayne.

Funeral services will be held Friday, December 30, 2011, at 1 p.m. at the funeral home. Interment with full military honors will follow at West Lawn Memorial Park. Relatives and friends may meet with the family Friday at the funeral home from 11 a.m. until time of service at 1 p.m. Memorials to the Parkinson’s Foundation have been suggested.

A very special thank you to his caregiver, Renee Heider, for her loving and compassionate care.
