Jack Harold Madden
June 18, 1946 – November 7, 2020

On the morning of November 7, 2020 Jack Madden, son of the late Joy Madden (nee Gzowski) and Ernest Madden, made his transition to the next phase of his journey at the age of 74.

His daughter Stacey Madden Procyk along with his three Grandchildren Jack “Little Jack,” (14) Michael “Mikey,” (11) Alexandra “Lexi,” (8) and Brother Patrick (Sherry) are devastated to lose the patriarch of their family and “the lord and master” of Betlyn, the family cottage.

Predeceased by his fiery redheaded wife Mary; the woman he fell in love with over half a century ago.

Jack’s character and charisma facilitated the creation of “family” that was created by choice; his chosen son Ken Procyk, and the Procyk family. The community that served as his cottage family; his beloved “Suttoners.” Jack was an honorary Nelson; the only hippie brother in law in the massive and loving Nelson family.

Jack, Grandpa Jack, Jackson, Big Jack, Jack the elder, Mr. Jack, Jacko, Julian, Uncle J, Dad……….we love you.

You had no concept of how much you meant to so many people.

Visitation at Marshall’s funeral home, in Richmond Hill on Thursday November 12th from 5-8pm.

In lieu of the celebration of life that cannot take place due to the pandemic, a proper farewell will take place in June 2021 at the family cottage. Please consider planting perennials at Betlyn in his memory at that time in lieu of sending flowers at this time.

If you wish to receive a zoom link to his small funeral service please email or text Stacey with your email address.

Love and Thanks
Stacey, Jack, Mikey & Lexi

My memories of Jack go way back to RHHS. I was one of the group who had the good fortune to hang out at the “little house” and also to know Jack’s Mum and Dad and brother, Patrick. (I still carry major guilt for thoughtlessly helping myself to a couple of packs of Joy’s cigarettes when I’d run out! What a brat.)
Jack was Cool. In my memory he was remarkably self possessed for a kid. He was kind, wise and very funny. He just seemed to know stuff and be clear about what he wanted and how to go about getting it.
I’m so happy to know that he and Mary had such a long, happy life together.

My condolences,
Lisa Jackson

I can’t remember when the Madden family moved next door to us on Richmond Street. We always had to wait for the go ahead from Mrs. Madden to go barefoot in the spring, and Mr. Madden would pour some water on the chinks in the ice rink before we could skate. My sisters, Cheryl and Diane , and I would chum around with Jack and Patrick in their back yard playing on the monkey bars. We used to practice circus acts and charge the parents five cents to watch. I remember when the boys got two kittens, Bruce and Norm. Jack was always there for us Andrews girls and later for my two brothers, Donald and David. He will be remembered. Cherish your memories. ❤️ Judi Andrews Elliott
Our sympathy goes out to you all. Cherish your memories. ❤️ Judi Andrews Elliott
