Marc E. Tadych, 52, passed away on November 24th, 2023 with his loving family by his side. He was born on August 15th, 1971 at St. Mary’s hospital in Minneapolis to Delroy and Patrica Tadych.

Marc attended Kindergarten in Olathe, Kansas, Elementary school in Hanover, MN, and graduated from Buffalo High School. He later attended North Hennepin Community College and the University of Minnesota obtaining a Bachelor’s in Ag-education. After a number of years of teaching, Marc decided to change careers and move to the manufacturing industry and didn’t look back.

On July 19th, 2003, Marc married the love of his life, Jessica MacDonald. Together they made the perfect team. Whether it was making sure the kids got to their events or taking care of chores around the house, they did it together. They also enjoyed spending free time with friends and family. Marc enjoyed sipping on Jameson-sevens either playing cards or floating down the river. Marc never failed to show Jessica and the kids how much he loved them.  He made sure his family was always taken care of, and was their great protector. He loved spending time with his kids.  Duck hunting, working on Eagle Scout projects, or working in the yard together were just a few of the activities he enjoyed with his son Ethan. He was Emily’s biggest and loudest cheering section at her soccer games, and enjoyed getting competitive at video games, and going on father daughter car rides, where they haggled over name that tune or artist.

Marc had an infectious smile and boisterous laugh that could light up and fill any room, especially after winning a game of Pfeffer, or telling one of his infamous dad jokes! Marc loved music! He was often found jamming out to some Hank Williams Jr., Merl Haggard, or Waylon by playing air guitar or drums at a red light. Marc was an avid outdoorsman like his father Del, and shared his passion for the outdoors with his son, Ethan. If it was a hunting/fishing season you would find Marc out with family and friends in a duck blind, deer stand looking for a trophy buck, on his boat, in his ice house, or hunting with his dog Blaze by his side.

Fishing opener was a Tadych tradition, spent fishing with his brothers, and later added his son, nephews and nieces. Marc enjoyed a nap or two when packing for hunting, or sleeping on the boat after hitting the water at midnight. His nieces and nephews were important to him, cheering them on at sporting events or checking in on their latest hunt.  Marc was an active member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic church in Buffalo Minnesota, as well as a member of the Knights of Columbus.

He was preceded in death by his Father: Del Tadych, and Aunt: Marie Paulson.

Marc will be lovingly remembered by his loving wife of 20 years Jessica, children: Ethan and Emily; mother: Pat Tadych of Corcoran, MN; brothers: Mike (Stacy) Tadych of Mora, MN and Brian (Christy) Tadych of Monticello, MN; Father and Mother-in-law: Terry and Della MacDonald of Hanover, MN; brother-in-law Shannon MacDonald of Hanover, MN, nieces and nephews; Garret (Lexi, Theo), Jenna, Colleen, Ashton, Aidan, Aaron, Allen, and Devin.

    I didn’t work with Marc very long as I retired in April of 2021 but he was always full of energy. I did get to play golf with him at the PEC golf outing. Marc will be missed by many.

    I am very sorry that I was not able to attend the visitation nor the funeral due to circumstances I could not control. I first met Marc about nine years ago when he became involved in the Metro Bowhunters Resource Base. He quickly showed his hunting skills, but more importantly he showed his willingness to help and to lead, and so we were able to put him into a hunt coordinator role, and he served well in that position for the past several years. I only knew him a little bit and so I can only imagine how much he is missed by all of you who knew him well. Please accept my condolences and hopes for healing.
