Frank Madden, a well-known, life-long resident of Lodi, along with his wife of 39 years, Debbie Madden, have recently had their lives dramatically changed. Frank was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and has been forced to give up his business a few months ago. Medical bills and treatment have been costly and are causing great concern to them in this difficult time.

Frank is a loving father of two, grandfather of nine and great-grandfather of one. He grew up in Lodi and graduated from Lodi High in 1972. He is greatly loved by his father Frank Madden Sr., who owned and managed DuBois Clothing Store — which was an important staple in Lodi for many years — and his mother Yvonne DeBois Hill, a lifelong resident of Stockton and Lodi.

Frank began his career working with Perryman Drilling Company, working his way up to Drilling Rig Supervisor. In 1983 he started working on general aviation aircraft, and then in 1985 began working for California Division of Forestry-Air Tanker Division until 1991. Until recently, he has owned Quality Aero Maintenance at the Kindgdon Airport and then Lodi Airport. His skills with aviation are well-known and respected throughout the community.

Frank has greatly contributed to our community for years by providing alcohol abuse education and support, and has helped many in need. He loves to fly, is an avid golfer and has enjoyed long rides on his motorcycle since his teen years. He is a great friend to many. Once a friend of Frank's, you are forever his friend.

If you wish to help, you may donate to the Frank Madden Medical Fund at Rabobank America in Lodi. We ask that you please pass on this information to other friends and acquaintances of Frank and his family.
