Reuben Kincaid Remembered – Fundraiser

Please Help Support the Work of the MDS Foundation

Dave Madden, the comedian and actor perhaps best known as Reuben Kincaid in The Partridge Family, passed away in January of 2014 after a five-year struggle with MDS.

An accomplished magician and musician, Dave enjoyed almost fourteen years of retirement before developing MDS. In this revised, edited, and updated edition of Reuben on Wry, Dave’s wife, writer Sandra Madden , included a final chapter devoted to Dave’s MDS journey. Thank you, Sandra!

Each purchase of Reuben Kincaid Remembered will support the work of the MDS Foundation.
