Madden and Wendy Madden Bandzul.  Bryan attended Marlborough and Woodstock area schools and graduated from Woodstock Academy in 2011, where he was a member of the football team and was an avid outdoorsman.  

As a third-generation tree climber, Bryan found opportunities to enjoy the wilderness through the establishment and growth of his business, Madden Tree Service, in 2020.  His enthusiasm for the outdoors led Bryan to particularly enjoy sunny afternoon cruises on his motorcycle and off roading to remote fishing spots. He delighted in making others laugh and was always there as a helping hand to anyone in a pinch.  He was known to all for his warm embrace, bright smile, determination, and mischievous spirit.
