Michael Maddan, Sr. of Maddan & Company, Inc. Passes Away at 65
Michael P. Maddan, Sr., a friend to all and a devoted member of the produce industry, has sadly passed away earlier last week at the age of 65.
Mr. Maddan, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Maddan & Company, Inc., will be remembered and admired in the industry for the many years to come. Known for his warm, generous nature, his friends and family say that he had a way of making each day special.
“Our father was the type of person who would help someone if he could and it didn’t matter who that person was,” said Michael Maddan, Jr. “Helping people was the right thing to do and he touched a lot of people over the years by living his life like that.”
Over the past 45 years, Mr. Maddan worked at the family food brokerage that his father founded in 1947. Food was his passion, and as such, he cherished every moment developing close relationships with several members of the produce industry. He looked forward to welcoming the fourth generation into the family business and having Maddan & Company, Inc. celebrate its 100-year anniversary.
In 1982, he served as the President of the Northern California Food Brokers Association. He was an active member of the Fresh Produce & Floral Council and the Produce Marketing Association. He was also involved within the City of Hope Northern California Food Industries Circle.
Mr. Maddan cared deeply about this family every day. He was married to Lynn Maddan for nearly 40 years and will be remembered as a loving father of four and grandfather of six.
A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, October 28th, at St. Cecilia’s Church, 2555 17th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94116 at 11:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, the Maddan family asks that a donation be made to the City of Hope.
