Eric Madden Memorial Contribution

Eric G. Madden, age 31. Passed away after a long struggle with alcoholism on March 28, 2016. Beloved son of Mark and Kathleen. Cherished brother of Melanie (Matt) Bales, Brianne (Brad Walker), and Caitlin. Loving partner of Megan McDonald. Eric was a dear grandson, nephew, cousin, friend, teammate, and coach to many. He will be truly and forever missed.

In honor of Eric and the legacy he will leave behind, we are asking to open up your hearts and make a contribution in his memory. Eric would rather us celebrate and laugh on the good times we all shared with him. He had the most contagious laugh. Everytime you knew you were going to be graced with his presence, you were guarenteed that you would kick back, crack some jokes and smile uncontrollably. 

Although his time on Earth was rather short, he left us each with atleast one great memory we can continue to live on with. 

We are hoping to establish an amount that will leave the Madden family with one less thing to have on their mind. Eric loved his friends, hockey, his girlfriend Megan, but loved his family even more. Let us come together to support the Madden's and if they desire to make any donations with these contributions in Eric Madden's memory.

We love you Eric! We will be thinking about you every day for the rest of our time on Earth. Til we meet again bro.
