ADDISON- Harvey Lee Maddox, 78, of Addison died on Wednesday, May 4, 2022. He was born on November 7, 1943 in Delrose, Tennessee to Lloyd Gene and Florence Geneva (McClure) Maddox. Harvey was one of six children in the Maddox family where family ties ran deep and you learned about a strong work ethic at a very early age. He attended school in Elkton and Boones Hill, Tennessee. Harvey relocated with his father and brothers to Michigan where the job opportunities in the automotive field were plentiful. Harvey worked at Lenawee Tire for several years and was set to start at Ford Motor Company in Saline when he was drafted into the United States Army. He served overseas in Vietnam from 1966-68, and upon his return to Michigan started at Ford, as they had reserved his position for him. He worked in heavy equipment maintenance and retired from Ford after 35 plus years of service. On April 12, 1971 Harvey married Gloria Gunter at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Adrian, and they celebrated 37 wonderful years together before her death on September 27, 2008. Together they raised a family and instilled in their children the responsibility of chores. Their children all remember being summoned out to the vegetable garden to help weed and tend to the produce. Harvey enjoyed hunting, fishing, and of course, spending time in his vegetable and flower gardens. He loved sharing his produce with friends and neighbors. Harvey had several Ford tractors that he loved to work on and keep them in running condition. Harvey is survived by his children, Karen (Ben) Perez, Kevin (Katie) Maddox, Monica (Garnett) Hegeman and Angie Maddox; grandchildren, Jonathan Perez (Julia Scoby), Rachael (Jordan) Kelly, Kaden Maddox, Chance Maddox, Jillian Maddox and Alexander Maddox; great-grandchildren, Benjamin Perez and Colson Kelly; siblings, Bobby and Tommy Maddox, Sandra Dillon and Beverly Harper; and several special grand dogs.
