    Steven David Maddern - husband, son, brother, uncle, friend - died at his home in Tucker, Georgia, on August 18, 2021. He was 48 years old.

    Steven was born on November 18, 1972, in Atlanta. Steven emitted kindness, compassion, joy and extraordinary humor despite having to overcome health obstacles since he was a young child. He excelled academically and loved reading. At 15 he discovered bass guitar and the instrument and all things funky remained his passion for the rest of his life.

    He graduated from Emory University receiving dual degrees in Women’s Studies and Psychology. Committed to the growth and development of students, he earned a Master’s Degree of Higher Education from the University of Georgia. He went on to work in residence life at James Madison University and at Emory University. He had started working on his doctoral at Emory, but his education and career were interrupted by the same life-long illness that ultimately took his life far too soon.

    His life was more than fulfilled with his devoted wife Heather Greenspan Maddern. They have been in one another’s lives since 2001 and were married in 2015.

    In addition to Heather, Steven is survived by his parents, Bonnie Eger and John Crowe of Amelia Island, and Les Maddern of Indianapolis; his brother Michael and wife Janet, nephews Andrew and Adrian, and niece Alyssa, all of Hendersonville, TN; his aunt Liz Maddern of Marietta, his uncle Jeff Eger of Tempe, AZ; his half-sister Sarah Maddern, his parents-in-law, Marty and Terry Greenspan, and a large and grieving family of friends.

    He is also survived by Tinley the rescue greyhound.

    We give thanks to God for blessing us with his life on earth. He touched us all in a very special way and will never be forgotten.

    There will be a memorial service at Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 3734 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd., Atlanta, Georgia 30341 on Sunday, August 22 at 11 AM.

    In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to your local humane society.

  • Ed Brown

    I'm deeply saddened Steven has left a huge empty spot in the hearts of so many. I offer my sincere condolences and heartfelt prayers for you, Heather. I know you and Steven loved each other deeply through thick and thin. I have so many precious memories of Steven for such a short time in his life and I know had the world not suddenly changed as it did, I would have many more. I tried so hard to brighten Steven's life as much as I could but I know the toll of chronic illness too well; the brokenness of life and the destruction of relationships. I give thanks to God that He found a way to connect us and fill us all with His perfect love. I've always felt that since we first met. If anything can ease the pain, it's knowing Steven feels no pain. May God hold us all in His loving hands and comfort us.

    I am so sad to hear about Steve. What a loss for us all. I have such memories from our two years together in our graduate school co-hort at UGA. He was the funniest person I knew and I will miss that quick-wit of his.

  • Sue Saunders

    I was so sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. I have such fond memories of Steve as a brilliant, humorous, and devoted young man. He was in the first class I taught at UGA and made that new experience a true pleasure.

  • Joanne Wilkoff Wilson

    To Bonnie, How do you heal a broken heart? What are the words to heal a broken heart? If I knew, I would use them. I don’t. If I could take away your pain, I would. I can’t. Just know that you are loved.

  • Ronnie and Larry Melnick

    Bonnie and John, Our hearts go out to you and your entire family upon the loss of your precious and wonderful son, Steven. You are the most loving and kind parents, grandparents and friends. With all our love, Ronnie and Larry
