Richard “Maynard” Madar, born Aug. 31, 1944, died at home Dec. 8, 2018.
He was a private man who led a hard-working and interesting life. His wealth of experience gave him many stories to share with those who knew him. Though he grew up in New Jersey, he was a Mainer by nature, self-sufficient and capable. He had a green thumb which made all the gardens he worked in thrive. He was an observer of nature’s details, and understood plants and animals often better than people. A lover of music and food, he enjoyed making both. He was a practical man but had an artistic eye and an artistic soul.
