A Tribute to John Maddock

“The death of John Maddock removes a landmark from the world of true sport. He was always an exponent of the manly art and for several years had a boxing school in this city. He bested every man of reputation in this section and had a left that was as quick as a flash and which became known the country over. He loves the horse race, had no dislike of games and was fearless to the core. He was a great dresser in his day and was considered one of the handsomest men of the state. Peace, sweet sleep to the pathetic dust of John Maddock.”1

“The funeral services of John B Maddock took place yesterday afternoon at the residence, Reverend Robjent officiating. The remains were laid to rest in Greenlawn cemetery.”2
