Marshall Bader Fund

On Sunday, January 19, 2020, the world lost a sweet soul whose smile & spark touched everyone he met.  Marshall Bader tragically & unexpectedly passed away at the tender age of 9.  He was a third-grade student at Murphy Elementary School in Grand Rapids, MN & a member of the Grand Rapids Youth Hockey Association. Marshall loved the sport of hockey & could not wait to be a Thunderhawk & play in the state tournament someday with his friends. Marshall was also an expert in farming, often teaching his buddies how to herd & feed cattle – even how cows were born!  
To know Marsh was to love him.  This page was created to support the Bader family during this unexpected & incredibly difficult time & to create a memorial fund to support  what Marshall loved most while allowing his name to live on for years to come. Locally, information is listed below for donations via check.  For those that prefer an electronic platform, the family has given permission for this site to be created.  Marshall’s family is incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support near & far as they navigate their way forward without their beloved #5.

Local option:

PO Box 429 Grand Rapids, MN 55744
Checks payable to Marshall Bader Memorial Fund

Thank you to everyone who has reached out and donated! The response has been overwhelmingly incredible. The Bader family is over the moon appreciative for all of the love that is being shared from all over the country
