Michael Maddix

October 24, 1966 — April 4, 2024

Michael David Maddix passed away on April 4, 2024. He was born to Richard Arthur and Rose Marie Maddix in Salinas, California, on October 24, 1966. As a child, Michael was very loving and caring. He loved working on his car with his dad. Michael was known for his warm and generous personality, always eager to lend a helping hand to those in need.

Michael joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at age 18. From 1986 to 1988, he served a mission in Scotland with "the greatest people on earth". Building memories with and getting to know lifetime friends from the Scotland Edinburgh Mission was a great pillar of strength for him. He continued serving in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all his life and loved being a Sunday School teacher.

After his mission, he attended BYU, where he met the love of his life Kathryn in 1989. They developed a friendship over several years, and on July 6, 1991, he caught the "biggest catch of his life" when they were married in the Logan Temple.

He was an avid fisherman, gardener, and do-it-yourself expert. He found joy in life's simple pleasures. Recently, he received the honor of "Yard of the Month," which he always aspired to achieve. Michael's talent for cooking brought family and friends together and created happy memories. He loved hosting fun parties that left guests in stitches with his sense of humor. Everyone loved Michael.

Michael enjoyed traveling for work and visited friends and family everywhere. He had a gift for making new friends wherever he would go. He planned the best trips for his sweetheart; their favorite destinations were Scotland, Italy, Monterey, and San Diego. Michael diligently served the deaf and hard of hearing and was passionate about creating accessibility for that community.

Michael is survived by his wife, Kathryn; children, Matthew (Katie) Maddix, Jennifer (Derek) Sorensen, Shannon (Tyler) Coughran, Mitchell Maddix; his three grandchildren, Rosie, Tatum, and Ivy; mother, Rose Marie Maddix; brother, Jeffrey (Cheryl) Maddix, and 19 nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his father, Richard Maddix, and brother and sister-in-law, Daniel (Denise) Maddix.
