He attended a one room school house in Minnesota. It was a big change to move to Seattle, after which he graduated from Roosevelt High School. Later he started in the construction trade, and began his own business. He was such a hard worker and dedicated man.

He met and married the love of his life Dorothy “Dottie” Schaut. They had three wonderful children. The family moved to Sheridan Wyoming in 1972. He worked for ABC builders for a while and then started his own concrete business “Madson Construction”, which is still successfully operated by his son. Moe was a man who prided himself on quality and honesty. He had a sense of humor all his life, even through his last days, and was always smiling.

He was a lifetime member of the Elks, and had a bowling team (Nite Owl league) winning 1st place. He loved being in the mountains fishing, hunting, camping, and being with his family. He served in the Washington National Guard for four years during the 1950s as a Sergeant. Moe loved Nascar, the Earnhardts, and the Seattle Seahawks.
