Obituary for WD Maiden
WD Maiden was born October 1, 1949, in Leland, MS, to the late Ruben and Ever Maiden. He attended the local schools in Leland and in the early 1960’s WD moved to New York City and started his career as a tractor trailer driver. WD traveled throughout the country until he set his sights on Boston, MA
In the early 70’s WD became very popular in Roxbury, as he managed a well known bar called the ‘Party Café” that was located in the heart of Boston. He was best known by his nickname “Super Fly.” He was given this name because he would always wear a trench coat with a split down the middle and high heel boots.
WD was loved by so many people and he truly enjoyed being around all his loved ones. Playing cards and dominos was his thing….and he hated to lose! Upon learning of his sickness, he kept that signature smile on his face. Throughout this battle he never allowed anything to get him down.
WD leaves to mourn his sister Lola Maiden and his brother Joe Maiden both of Boston, MA. He was preceded in death by his parents and his sisters Ruby Allison, Mary Holloway and Bertha Beauford as well as his brothers Roosevelt Maiden, Harry Maiden, Willie James Maiden and Ruben Maiden.
