Man Found Dead After Trying to Clear Insect Hive

After apparently trying to clear an insect hive outside his Roselle home, Bruce Madiar was found a short time later lying on his front step, a friend and authorities said Tuesday.

"He just collapsed within five minutes," said Ray Dean, a friend and business manager for an ironworkers local where Madiar had served as president.

Madiar, 62, died Monday evening at Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove Village. It wasn't clear Tuesday what caused his death or whether he might have been bitten by insects as initial reports suggested, officials said.

His face was swollen, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

When police arrived, Madiar's wife told them her husband had been trying to remove an insect hive lodged under their home's overhang, Roselle police said.

Outside Madiar's split-level house a can of wasp spray remained on a window ledge Tuesday afternoon as insects that appeared to be wasps flew around a window.

Madiar had worked as a master locksmith for Cook County since 1993. He served as the president of Local Union 63 International Association of Bridge, Structural and Ornamental Iron Workers for nine years, Dean said. Madiar retired from his post last year, but still was involved with the union.

Among Madiar's accomplishments as president is a loan program he helped implement for union members struggling to keep their homes during the tough economy, Dean said.

Madiar, a father of three and grandfather of five, also loved music. He is the father of Illinois Senate President John Cullerton's chief lawyer, Eric Madiar.

Madiar frequently vacationed in New Buffalo, Mich., where he planned to build a home and retire, Dean said.

Known for his casual attire, Madiar was famous for wearing shorts everywhere, Dean said, smiling.

"He wasn't the rough and tumble ironworker," he said. "He was the articulate, intelligent … guy."

Madiar's family issued a brief statement Tuesday noting his "extraordinary strength, character and generosity."
