He was known as a most compassionate and caring nurse to the thousands of patients he has interacted with over the last two decades in his nursing career at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center and most recently at Monadnock Regional Pediatrics. Curt lived life with passion and loyalty. He was passionate about his love for sports, especially the New England sports teams and most notably the New England Patriots. He was an emphatic lover of animals of all kinds. He loved the outdoors; whether it was hunting, fishing, boating or tapping trees for sap with his children he found great joy in it all. Curt's other simple pleasures included bowling, golf, softball, Budweiser, The Grateful Dead, and "the camp". There was no greater passion for Curt than his family and friends. While he was quiet and soft spoken, he loved them fiercely and was unwavering in his loyalty to them. He will be deeply missed for his wonderful sense of humor and friendship. In addition to his father, Joseph, Curt is survived by his loving wife of more than 13 years, Jill Hickox of Peterborough, his son, Wolfgang Madeja of Bradenton, Fla., his two daughters, Jacqueline Madeja and Annika Madeja both of Peterborough, his siblings, Anne Marie Madeja-Whipple and her husband, Jay of Claremont, N.H. and David Allen Madeja of Barnstead, N.H.
