Iowa City


Henry ("Hank") Madden
of Iowa City passed away Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, at the age of 88 years after a long illness.
He was born in Detroit to Charles and Helen Madden weeks before the 1929 Crash. He grew up in Minneapolis with his siblings Chuck, Betty (Sister Bianca), John and Patrick.
He is survived by his wife, Mary Anne (nee Costello); daughters, Lynn Madden and Kathy Madden Williams (Gerry); son, Mark Madden (Beverly); 10 grandchildren; and stepchildren, Annie Braverman (Tom) and Matt, Tim and Nick Volm.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Chuck; and granddaughter, Cate.
Hank was a man of many vocations: engineer, corporate executive, educator, historian, and very often philosopher and political commentator. Above all, he was a reliable and loyal friend to all who knew him.
A celebration of his life will be held on Dec. 16 with a Mass of Christian Burial at 8:30 a.m. at St. Mary's Church in Iowa City followed by a non-denominational memorial service and reception at 11:30 a.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Society, 2355 Oakdale Rd., Coralville.
