Kenneth Arliss Maddux passed away Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2010, in Kingman. He was born Feb. 23, 1954, at the Kingman hospital to Robert Johns "Bo" and Rachel Dancer Maddux.
Ken is survived by his four children, Justin (Suzanne) Maddux of Dallas, Kari (Jim) DeBoer of Grand Rapids, Mich., Sara (Nick) Stadel of Grand Rapids, and Michael Maddux of Pierson, Mich.; grandchildren, Linnea and Beau Maddux of Dallas, Jim and Matthew DeBoer and Aiden, Carson and Landon Stadel, all of Grand Rapids. He is also survived by his brother, Norman Maddux; and sisters, Lile Stratton, Leanna Butrymowicz and Barbara Long, all of Kingman; and by many nieces and nephews.
His parents, his brother Mike and sister Sharon Hedges all preceded him in death.
Ken was a person who, no matter how bad anything was, could make you laugh and find humor in any situation. He loved his family and they loved him. Even though he is again with his other loved ones, he will be missed by his family and friends.
Ken loved the desert and the Kingman area, and after spending many years in Michigan, he came back home.
He will be cremated and a graveside service will be held at a later time.
