Douglas Lloyd Richard Madden, 67, of Wausau, passed away at Aspirus Wausau Hospital, on Tuesday, January 21, 2020.
Doug was born on July 26, 1952, the only child to Lloyd and Marion (Leffel) Madden. He graduated from Northcentral Technical College with an Associates Degree in Business and worked as the Dairy Manager for Quality Foods IGA.
Doug was a kind and caring man. He volunteered countless hours with the Chatterbox Charities, helping the kids in our area. He enjoyed traveling, especially to New Orleans and Washington DC. And in his younger years, he loved to travel up north with his mom and dad, and row the boat while his mom would fish. He loved his nieces and nephews and looked forward to spending time with them whenever he could. He was a good friend, a caring partner, and loving son. Doug called his mom almost every day and was always sure to tell her that he loved her before saying goodbye. His smile and generosity will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Doug is survived by his loving mother, Marion; his significant other of 30 years, Diane Kuhnert; his cousins, Pat (Tom) Nemke, Barb (Jeff) Krohn and Sandy (Tim) Weller; as well as his special friends, Dennis (Laura) Kuhnert and their children and Darlene (Chad) Ringle and their children. He was preceded in death by his father, Lloyd Madden.
A funeral service will be held at 1:00 pm on Sunday, January 26, 2020 at Helke Funeral Home, 302 Spruce Street, Wausau. Rev. Erik Olson will officiate. Visitation will take place from 12:00 am until the time of services at the funeral home. Burial will take place at Pine Grove Cemetery at a later date.
