There are many reasons this can happen to a tree and it is extremely difficult to diagnose without being able to examine the tree. As you have lost one maple, and are losing another, I would say that it is likely a maple specific disease, but beyond this I can only recommend having a tree professional come and examine the tree to see if they could determine the cause.
