Gregory O. Madison, 66, passed away peacefully on September 6, 2019 after a brief illness. Greg (Mr. Madison, GM, G) was born on December 15, 1952 in Columbus, Ohio to Robert and Flossie Madison. He was a retiree of Lucent Technologies and was an award-winning car salesman for 28 years. He graduated from Linden-McKinley High School.
Greg was an avid sports fan and could, more often than not, be found watching golf, tennis, and cheering for his Cincinnati Bengals, Golden State Warriors, and, most recently, Columbus Crew.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Kendell, (previous union) Janis Madison, and daughters Erika Madison (Taye) and Gennifer Madison along with grandchildren Wuan and Emonie.
Greg was preceded in death by his parents Bob and Flossie Madison, and brothers Donald Madison and Robert Madison. He leaves not only the loved ones listed previously, but innumerable other family (both Madison and St. James, etc.), nieces, nephews, special friends Betsie Madison Kent and Janis Madison, and a host of other adored friends and extended family. Kendell and the girls (Erika and Gennifer) wish to extend their deepest heartfelt hugs and thanks to Dr. Mark Hackman and Dr. Stevco Stefanoski at Mt. Carmel East Hospital as well as Dr. Jeff Myers and Greg’s entire team of multiple physicians/specialists and nursing staff at OSU Wexner Medical Center/The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute for their beyond phenomenal caring and compassionate ways with not only Greg but with the family as well.
Visitation will be held 1pm-3pm on Sunday, September 15th, 2019 followed by a memorial service and veterans' honors at White's Chapel. Interment will take place at Dayton National Cemetery.
