Nolan Leo Majeski was born on December 30, 1986, in Arlington, Minnesota. He was the son of Joel and Lynn (Schoeberl) Majeski. Nolan was baptized as an infant and was later confirmed in his faith as a youth, both at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Winthrop. In 2002 while in high school, Nolan started working for a local bee company, Honls Bee’s. There, he developed a passion for working with honey bees. He enjoyed exploring and learning the ropes of raising bees and harvesting honey. Nolan was also employed at the local grocery store throughout high school.
After graduating from GFW High School in 2005, Nolan continued working for Honls Bee’s while earning a degree in non-destructive metal testing from Ridgewater College. After 2 years in the field, Nolan began traveling out of state, working for Tri-State Drilling as a heavy equipment operator.
In 2013, Nolan took a huge leap of faith, following his passion in life, and purchased a bee business, Majeski Apiaries. Nolan knew right away he wanted his business to grow and expand, which brought him to Marshall, Texas. Nolan started off by staying in a hotel room alone, driving around, finding people to introduce himself to. In just a few short years, Nolan developed several work relationships as well as treasured friendships. In preparation for today’s service, the family has been contacted on multiple occasions in regards to the impact Nolan has left on this Texan community.
Nolan was an avid hunter, spending many hours on the water hunting geese and ducks. He also enjoyed big game hunting for deer, bear, as well as a hunting trip to Africa in 2009. As a life time member at the Winthrop Game Protective League, he worked to improve his shot to near perfection. He cherished the time he spent with his family and friends, especially his four Nieces/Goddaughters. Nolan’s true passion was the outdoors - hunting, bee keeping, swimming, bonfires, taking in God’s creation.
Nolan will be missed dearly, by his family and friends. All that knew him, loved him. His generosity and heart of gold are rare treasures not found often in this world. He was a man that would do anything for anyone, always with a smile. His sense of humor and contagious charisma will be sorely missed by all that knew him.
