Born in the Bronx, NY on September 9, 1945 to Eugene Patrick and Eileen Gaughan Madden, who predeceased him, John leaves behind his beloved fiancee Mary Allen and adoring sons Samuel Patrick and Christopher Michael. He is survived by sisters Maryalice DuVal, Eileen Osmolskis (Paul), and Kathleen Baumeister (John); brother Eugene (Rene); eight nieces and nephews; and many long- time friends. After obtaining a BCE from Manhattan College and an MSCE from NYU, John served as a civil engineer, primarily for the US Corps of Engineers, for nearly a decade. He then received a Juris Doctor from St. John's University, and launched a diverse career as an international arbitrator, mediator, lawyer, and law professor. John served as a neutral on such projects as the "Big Dig" in Boston, the Dublin Port Tunnel, Wembley Stadium in London, and the Jumbo Ferry project in Puget Sound, Washington. He was admitted to practice before the US Supreme Court, US Patent and Trademark Office, US District Courts, New York and New Jersey Bars, and was a member of the Law Societies of Ireland and of England and Wales.
