The Rev. Roy M. Maddrey, 92, founder of Enon Chapel Baptist Church at 54th and Sansom Streets in West Philadelphia, died Monday, Sept. 10, at Heartland Hospice House of Delaware in Wilmington. He formerly resided in West Philadelphia.
Mr. Maddrey was president of the West Philadelphia Ministerial Forum from 1971 to 1974.
He led several outreach ministries, including visits to prisons.
"He was very popular at Graterford," the state prison in Montgomery County, his daughter, Wanda Maddrey-Randolph, said. "That was one that constantly had him back.
"He would go there early," at 6 a.m. on Sundays, "so he could be back at his own church" for regular morning services, she said.
