Michael McFadden, the youngest of five children was born on March 19, 1949 here in Fairbanks, at the old Saint Joseph’s Hospital. He came into this world weighing 13.5 pounds, the largest baby born at that hospital. He lived all his life here in Fairbanks, graduating from Lathrop High School in 1969. He liked working with electronics in his younger days, but due to arthritis he had to give that up, so he worked at the Boatel and Gold Rush Saloon.
Michael was preceded in death by his parents Natalie and Patrick McFadden Sr.; brothers, Patrick Jr. and James; sisters Kathleen McFadden and Mary Ellen Davis and his nephew, Max Davis. He is survived by his sister, Patricia Shelley of Fairbanks; and nephews, Brian and Philip Davis of Palmer. Per Michael’s request, there will be no services.
