Obituary for Harry Rosengarten Madeira

Print
Harry Rosengarten Madeira, 92, passed away at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor on Sunday, October 21, 2018. He was born on June 25, 1926 in Ardmore, PA, the son of Crawford Clark Madeira and Sarah Claypoole (Neilson) Madeira.

Known to his family and friends as “The Chief”, he attended the Episcopal Academy, Merion. PA. and graduated from the Middlesex School, Concord, MA with a war diploma in 1945. After serving in the Army Air Corps, he then attended Princeton University.
Harry began his business career in Buffalo, NY in 1953 working for General Coal Company, the sales and marketing subsidiary of Westmoreland Coal Company, as a salesman in the western New York and Canada region. He continued his career back at the company headquarters in Philadelphia, retiring in 1982 as Executive Vice President and a Director of General Coal Company.
Upon his retirement, Harry moved full time to Northeast Harbor, ME on the Island he loved, and where he had spent every summer of his life. Harry became very involved in both the summer and year round communities. He was as a member of the Lions Club, served on the town’s Warrant Commission, and was for many years President of the MDI Water District. Harry had been President of the Northeast Harbor Tennis and Swim Club for over 40 years when he retired from that position last year. He was also a former flag officer and Commodore of the Northeast Harbor Fleet, and a great supporter of the International One Design Class, where he was a fixture at sailing events both in Northeast Harbor and Bermuda.
The Chief was certainly larger than life on so many levels. With an imposing frame and a gruff exterior, he had a heart of gold underneath. He cared so deeply for Mount Desert Island and he worked hard to preserve its very essence. He sailed the same waters for 92 years and never tired of the majestic scenery.
Harry is survived by his four children; Harry R. (Gary) Madeira, Jr and his wife Harriet, of Berwyn, PA, Callie M Brauer and her husband Henry of Marblehead, MA, Susanne M Coffin of Radnor, PA and Steve Madeira and his wife Pam of Menlo Park, CA. He is also survived by 9 loving grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his two brothers; Crawford C. Madeira, Jr and Lewis N. Madeira.
Services will be scheduled for next summer. Interment will be at Forest Hill Cemetery, Northeast Harbor. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in The Chief’s memory to The Mount Desert Nursing Association, PO Box 397, 12 Summit Road, Northeast Harbor, ME 04662 or the Northeast Harbor Ambulance Service, Inc., PO Box 122, 9 Kimball Road, Northeast Harbor, ME 04662.
