Christopher T. Maddox Jr., a retired lawyer and Korean War veteran, died of stomach cancer Sunday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The lifelong Catonsville resident was 78.

He was a 1945 graduate of Catonsville High School and earned his law degree in 1948 from what is now the University of Baltimore Law School.

From 1952 to 1956, he served in the Navy as a yeoman aboard the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal.

Mr. Maddox worked as a lawyer for Commercial Credit Corp. before joining Fidelity & Deposit Co. of Maryland in its salvage department in 1975. He retired in 2000.

A Civil War buff, he liked collecting books on the war and visiting its battlefields.

For years, he was a communicant, volunteer, lector and Eucharistic minister at St. Joseph Monastery Roman Catholic Church, 251 S. Morley St., where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

He is survived by a brother, Bernard G. Maddox of Catonsville.
