Mr. William “Bill” Joseph Madden of Clover, SC, passed away Friday, May 5, 2023, at Atrium Health, Pineville, NC after a brief illness.
Bill was born February 8, 1943, in North Brookfield, MA to the late William “Red” James and Bertha Revane Madden. He grew up in Chatham, MA (Chatham High School class of 1961).

After retirement, he settled in Lake Wylie, SC with the love of his life, Ellen Gillis, and doted on his grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by Ellen. Survivors are his son Raymond Madden (Stacey) and grandchildren Darby Madden and Kolbe Madden of Winter Park, FL; brother Michael Madden (Linda) of Edmonds, WA; and nephew Connor Madden of Chicago.
