17 Maddux

Lee Maddux,  a big hearty soul and a fine writer I enjoyed your friendship over the many years. Father, husband and friend  you helped out the local neighborhood kids, treating them as family and you continued to help and mentor us as adults.   Your contributions to the entertainment field are legendary. You are missed, man. We will carry on but life is a bit less jovial and missing a fantastic personality and character. It was always cool speaking German and gassing with you at Big Stevie’s and Louie’s place. Thank you for the writing tips and mentorship.

I have included some of your works for posterity sake, brother.
