Dwayne's Story

GREENBUSH - Dwayne A. "Uncel Tinky" Madden, 51, died unexpectedly September 11, 2016. He was born in Bangor a son of Freemont H and Joanne A. (Michaud) Madden.
Dwayne was a hardworking and dedicated man, he could even be described as a workaholic, and many a nights Cindy would have to yell for him to come in and get supper at some point before bed. He was constantly tinkering or fixing something or building a jitterbug, always busy. He enjoyed four wheeling, mudding, and snowmobiling, but the "Safari hunting" trips with his buddies Bobby White and Louie Saucier were special. On Safari days they would leave around 8am and return hopefully by dark, traveling the roads to see what kind of treasure would come their way. Most times they would come home and the truck would be rounded over with stuff. Dwayne was also good with the advice, but only ask if you wanted it straight up with no sugar coating, and most times it would come with a swift kick in the ass. Dwayne was a father figure to many, always lending a helping hand, and would even give the shirt off his back even if he had to go without. Dwayne's work ethic came from his dad, whom he worked side by side with until his Dad's death in 2009. Since 2010 he has worked for his uncle Fernald Madden. There is a special bond between a father and son, but the relationship between Dwayne and Aaron was really special. The two did many projects together and were always calling one another, even if they just left each other.
He is survived by his wife of 31 years Cindy; three children Aaron Madden and his fiancé Brittany Secotte, Anna Madden, and John Hutchinson; four grandchildren Destiny, Mason, Savannah, and Alexandrai; his mother Joan Devost and her husband Reno, his step mother Carla Madden; 10 siblings Brenda French, Stanley Madden and his fiancé Susan Smith, Sally Elwell and her husband Ed, Jeff Madden, Harold Madden and his wife Valerie, Brenda Savage and her husband Mark, Pam Spoffard and her husband Kerry, Michael Knowles and his wife Denise, Gerald Knowles and his wife Debra, and Wanitta Ross; many nieces nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his dad Freemont in 2009, nephew Robert French and close friend Louie Saucier.
Friends and family may visit from 1-4pm Saturday at the Birmingham Funeral Home 438 Main St Old Town. A celebration of his life gathering will follow at the Helen S. Dunn School, Military Road, Greenbush. Burial will be at a later date at Cardville Cemetery.
