Wade Allan Madding

Our perfect boy Wade Allan Madding was born and opened his eyes to Jesus on December 12, 2022, at 8:11 pm at only 18 weeks of life.

At only 18 weeks of life our precious boy had his momma’s nose, lips, and toes and his daddy’s adorable and notable forehead wrinkle. He was the most anticipated member of his family. He would have been the most rotten little boy you have ever met due to the amount of love that surrounds his perfectly short life. We can only imagine the joys and trouble that we would’ve encountered between him and his big sister being only 2 years apart.

Wade Allan is preceded in death by his maternal great-grandmother Dorothy “Dottie” Cartmel, maternal great-grandparents Calvin and James Marshall, paternal great-grandmother Willie “Carolyn” Miller, step great-grandfather William “Bill” Miller, paternal great-grandparents Carl “Hershal” and Marguerite Madding.

He is survived by his parents Tyler and Ashlyn Madding; sister Magnolia Cate; maternal grandmother Sara Marshall of Ward, Arkansas and maternal grandfather Allen Marshall (Shannon Reveley) of Cabot, Arkansas; paternal grandparents Dan and Karen Madding of Ward, Arkansas; maternal aunt and uncle Megan and Hunter Perkins (Charlie Claire) of Beebe, Arkansas, maternal uncle Colton Marshall of Searcy, Arkansas; paternal aunt and uncle Malloree and Steyn Benade of Seattle, Washington; and maternal great-grandfather Dalton Cartmel of Cabot, Arkansas. He is also survived by a multitude of additional family and friends.

The Madding Family along with our extended family would like to personally thank Brad and Judy Staley, Brother Keith Lewis, Charity Baptist Church, and the amazing nurses, doctors, and staff at UAMS Labor and Delivery.
