Darick Rademacher, 33, Foxholm, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012, at his home in Foxholm of natural causes.
Darick Scott Rademacher was born Dec. 14, 1978, the son of Daryl and JoAnne (Rud) Rademacher, in Minot. He was raised in Foxholm and was baptized and confirmed at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Foxholm. He attended school at Carpio Public School, and Little Flower Catholic School and Bishop Ryan High School, both Minot. He played basketball from third grade until ninth grade and played junior high school football as well. He graduated from Bishop Ryan High School in 1997.
Following his high school graduation, he farmed full time with his dad. Darick was once married to Jennifer Lochthowe. They made their home near Foxholm. From this union, a daughter, Brianna, and a son, Dustin, were born. In 2009, Darick became owner/operator of Rademacher Farms and Trucking.
Darick was a loving, fun and fiercely protective father to Brianna and Dustin. It was, by far, the role he loved most. Darick the 'Dad' was Darick at his finest. Darick the brother and son will be loved and missed beyond what words can describe. He was grandson, cousin, nephew and friend. Each role leaves sorrow in its wake for those whose lives Darick blessed. "Sunshine" will forever shine brightly in the hearts of all who knew him.
His loving family includes: his children, Brianna, 7, and Dustin, 5; mother and father, JoAnne and Daryl Rademacher, Foxholm; brother, Wade (Amber) Rademacher, Foxholm; maternal grandmother, Clarice (Lloyd) Rudd, Fergus Falls, Minn.; his "Finnish sister," Katri Afelt, Helsinki, Finland, and his "Norwegian sister," Christine Hauglum, Sande, Norway; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
