John Wayne Maddox

May 19, 1949 ~ August 26, 2021 (age 72)


Mr. John Wayne Maddox, age 72, a lifelong resident of Porterdale passed away at home on 
Monday, August 23, 2021. He was at peace when he left for heaven; as he was surrounded by 
his loving wife and all three sons. He was born May 19, 1949 at the Porterdale Hospital to  
Levie Alvin “Pop” and Maxie “Bubba” McClure Maddox; who have preceded him in death.  
Mr. Maddox graduated from Newton County High School and  Julia A. Porter United 
Methodist Church was his home Church. To say John Wayne Maddox had a passion for Porterdale and the people of Newton County is an understatement; he helped to lead Porterdale just as it became a true City, developed multiple businesses, remodeled homes and commercial properties, and provided for the people of his community far more than will ever be known.
His love for Porterdale was only matched by his love and devotion to his wife and family.  
Mr. Maddox loved his family and taught them all a strong work ethic.  He was not a man of 
many hobbies; however, if his children or grandchildren wanted to do it, he was all in.  A loving 
husband of 52 years, father, grandfather, soon to be great grandfather, brother, and friend he will 
be greatly missed. He was preceded in death by sisters Francis Vivian Maddox, Ina Faye 
Maddox Aiken, Betty Lou Maddox Shaw, Emily Joanne Maddox Knight, Eva Sharon Maddox; 
his brothers Lynwood Alvin Maddox, Jessie Cornelius Maddox, and David Newton Maddox.  
Mr. Maddox is survived by his wife Vicki Herring Maddox, his sons and daughters-in-law John 
Wayne Maddox, Jr. and Sonya, Levie Allan Maddox and Tara, Anthony Jason Maddox and 
Nancy, grandchildren McKenzi Maddox Aguilar, Taylor Elizabeth Maddox, Levie Allan  
Maddox II, Lexi Shade Maddox, Maxie Chayce Maddox, Ripken Ty Maddox, Ansley Grace 
Maddox, and Hudson Grey Maddox; grandson-in- law Dustin Alfredo Aguilar; his siblings Gail 
Maddox Lindsey, Glenda Maddox Austin, and Shirley Maddox Crawford along with a host of 
nieces, nephews, other family and close friends. 
Private services will be held at a later date. At this time the family asks for privacy, your 
thoughts, prayers, and love for them; which are greatly appreciated.
