Todd Maddox

Born December 17, 1963 in Gadsden, Alabama
Departed July 16, 2023 in Melbourne, Florida

Lieutenant Todd Maddox passed away peacefully on July 16th with his family and friends lovingly by his side. Today, he’s celebrating with the Lord in Heaven.

Born on December 17, 1963 to Janet and Larry Maddox, Todd lived his rambunctious young life in Centre, Alabama with his brother Slone. Todd spent many of his days out in the country hunting, fishing, and doing his best to stay out of trouble. In 1982, he graduated from Cherokee County High School and set off to Auburn University.

After graduating in 1987 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, Todd enrolled at the Police Academy in Montgomery where he would eventually work as a policeman doing what he loved for three years before becoming a deputy sheriff in Brevard County. Serving and protecting the community was Todd’s passion throughout his entire life and he made an immeasurable impact on so many people in the community. Todd proudly served the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and our community with pride and honor for over 33 years.

Todd was blessed with three children – Tristan, Travis, and Kaylee – who he loved more than he ever imagined possible. Todd coached every sport that his kids played and was there for every single moment. When Todd wasn’t at work or spending time with his kids he was always accompanied by the “best friends a man could ask for”. Todd would travel the world and spend as much time on the ocean as he could. He always wanted to be just like Jimmy Buffet one day.

After being diagnosed, Todd spent his years fighting while never letting on that anything was wrong. He would spend his last years traveling and doing everything he ever wanted to do with his wife he loved endlessly, Carolina, who he married in 2019 forming their own Brady Bunch. His family includes his wife Carolina Maddox; sons Travis Maddox and Tristan Maddox; daughter Kaylee Miller; stepdaughter Daniella Bowen; stepson Jonathan Bowen; stepdaughter Gabriela Bowen; parents Larry and Janet Maddox; brother Slone Maddox and granddaughter Adelyn.

Todd will be remembered for all the genuine heart and great times he shared with his friends and family. He truly loved each of them. When Todd’s time came, he carried himself with strength, dignity, and love for everyone around him.

A celebration of his life will be on Wednesday, July 26, 2023 at 1:30 pm at First Baptist Church of Indialantic, 170 Washington Avenue, Indialantic, Florida, 32903.

The family of Lieutenant Todd Maddox are most grateful for the gift of friends like you all, who have been so kind and thoughtful during these hours of sorrow. Your prayers, visits, calls, and every act of kindness, have given us strength and inspiration. In lieu of flowers, Todd and his family ask that donations be made to his childhood church in his honor to the building fund:

May God ever bless each of you.

So sorry to hear of Todd's passing. I have known him for about 6 years, and it's always been a pleasure talking with him. Our visits were short, but he always has a smile for me. Rest easy Todd, we'll see you again soon. James

I'm so sorry that after myself, you ( Todd) John neilson and Chou joined the sheriff's office together that we weren't able to continue what we started, we partied hard, fought hard and lived to make sure everyone else was able to do the same, although time was too short we will always have good memories of the times we had together. RIP my friend/brother we will finish our plans when we meet again !! My sincere condolences to Todd's family !!!
