He was the beloved husband of the late Margaret "Peggy" Buchino Madar. Born in Bridgeport on October 31, 1930 he was a son of the late Michael and Josephine Kochiss Madar.
Ray worked as a machinist for Moore Special Tool Company with 39 years of dedicated service before his retirement in 1993. Mr. Madar was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army, having served honorably during the Korean War.
