A Madoff Son Looks Forward
Andrew Madoff and his fiancée hosted nearly two dozen close friends for Thanksgiving this year, an event guests jokingly called an “Orphan Thanksgiving.” Many flocked to the Madoff residence on Manhattan’s Upper East Side because they lived some distance from their own relatives, or were at odds with them.
For Andrew Madoff, the designation rang true. He hadn’t spoken with his father, fraudster Bernard Madoff, or his mother Ruth Madoff, in the nearly two years since his father’s December 2008 arrest. Just a couple of weeks after that holiday meal, Andrew lost his brother, Mark Madoff, to suicide.
