RIP Dave Madden

Dave Madden

Another actor has passed. Dave Madden known as Ruben Kincaid, the manager for the Partridge Family, passed at the age of 82. And, he was a veteran says Wiki;

Madden spent one semester at Indiana State Teachers College, and in 1951 dropped out to enlist in the United States Air Force. Assigned to Special Services, he was sent to Tripoli, Libya, where he was a hit as an entertainer in camp shows and native theater, even performing before Idris of Libya, ruler at the time.

Thanks to Andy for the link.

    The men of that generation knew they were men and didn’t need a fawning media to point out to the world that they have a swinging dick between their legs. They were the men we respected as we grew up back in the last century…
    Godspeed to both of them.
