HAMPDEN - On Thursday May 21, 2015 our family lost a beautiful soul and a truly kind and gentle man. Tony Madore passed away at the young age of 47, at his home in Hampden, Maine. He was a giving, tender human being, who would do anything for anyone at any time, and his untimely death leaves a great hole to fill in the lives of many who knew and loved him. He will be sorely missed, and his potential never realized. God has taken a soul, but not a spirit, and not the memories that his family and friends will keep in their hearts and minds forever. His humor, smile, and the gleam that was deep in his eyes touched everyone who knew him. We will all miss him deeply, and feel the pain of his early departure from all our lives.
Tony enjoyed working with everyone at Captain Nick's in Bangor for the last 11 years.
Tony was born on February 22, 1968, the son of Richard and Catherine (McGowan) Madore. Catherine passed away when Tony was a year old. He thought of his mother often and she would have been proud of him.
