Born in Plains on January 9, 1934, to Joseph and Anna (Pelak) Madison. Joe was a life resident of Plains Twp., graduating from Plains Memorial High School in 1952 where he met his forever love, Christine Mido Madison. Joe and Christine attended many socials and enjoyed dancing the night away with their dear friends as part of a group called “The Bacala Club.” There were many moments where they were the only couple on the dance floor dancing their favorite dance the Polish Oberek. In addition to dancing, Joe was a talented drummer for the polka band “The Plains Brothers” and filled in as drummer for Eddie Derwin & The Polka Naturals.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Francis Madison, John Madison, and Joseph “Junior” Madison.
