Michael F. Madden

Michael F. Madden, 73, passed away at Yale-New Haven Hospital after a brief illness on Sunday morning, May 30, 2021, surrounded by loving family members.

Born on Jan. 27, 1948, he was the eldest son of Robert F. and Edith Y. Madden.

Mike grew up in Lake Placid, attended Northwood School and graduated from St. Michael’s College.

Mike’s career found him centered in New York City for 42 years as he worked his way through operational roles in American Insurance Group, Zurich Insurance and retiring from Odyssey/Re Insurance Group in 2011.

He moved from Brooklyn to Lake Placid in June 2011.

Survivors include three sisters: Colby Madden Bosch (William) of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Catherine Wescott (Guy) of Greencastle, Pennsylvania, and Rebecca Mason (Steve) of Gardnerville, Nevada; three brothers, Peter Madden (Laura) of North Haven, Connecticut, Jeffrey Madden (Jo-Louise) of Newport News, Virginia, and John Madden of Friday Harbor, Washington; and many loving nieces and nephews, cousins, and grand nieces and nephews.

Mike was very fortunate to have developed a Lake Placid family including Marc and Gudrun Hess, Don Beamon, Chris and Lori Hess Evangel, Dave and Linda Jones, Barbara and Maura Jones, Jay Strack, Mitzi from Newman’s News, and so many more friends who Mike considered his family.

Mike loved life, being around family and friends, and he will be remembered for his generosity, kindness and humility.

Mike was a New York Giants fan, University of Connecticut women’s basketball devotee, and his passion was dabbling in the stock market while listening to Jim Kramer. He also had a fondness for old westerns, good scotch and Bob Dylan.

Family and friends are asked to gather at St. Agnes Cemetery at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 10 for a memorial service to salute Mike and share memories as we join to celebrate a life well and truly lived.
