It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our sweet charming boy Marshall “Turbo” Charles Bader, age 9, from Boy River, MN. Marshall was a third-grade student at Murphy Elementary School in Grand Rapids, MN. When Marshall wasn’t playing hockey with his buddies, he loved to spend time on his family farm helping his dad with cattle, haying, building things, and zipping around on the go-kart he bought with his own hard-earned money. He also loved to hunt and fish; he had been planning many future hunting trips with his dad.
Marshall loved the sport of hockey and anyone who knew him, saw that he was made for the ice. He couldn’t wait to be a Thunderhawk and play in the state tourney with his friends. He had many mentors in the local hockey community who believed in his talent and treated him as their own son; for that, our family will forever be thankful. To know Marshall, was to love him. Although his time on this earth was too short, his impact was great. Marshall brought a brightness to all of our lives that was undeniable. He was full of charisma and charm; he’d be the first to lend a helping hand. He was the hardest working nine-year old you would have ever met; something that not only he took a great deal of pride in, but his family did as well. Marshall will forever be remembered for his sweet smile, contagious laugh and big heart.
Marshall is survived by his proud parents Michael and Megan, his adoring sisters Maddy and Maisie, grandparents Leroy and Cherri Bader, Earl and Barbette Armstrong, and Anne Armstrong, his aunts and uncles Piper and Ron Lampi, Justin and Gina Armstrong, Aaron Armstrong, and Brandon Armstrong, as well as his cousins Kenzie, Kelbee, Kullen, Spencer and Aimi, and his special pooches Roxy and Ole. Services will be held at the Bethany Lutheran Church, Deer River, MN. Visitation will be on Sunday, January 26, 2020 from 2 – 4 p.m. with a memorial service followed by a luncheon to be held at 4 p.m.
