Longtime Fargo chiropractor Marc Patrick Vein died unexpectedly Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018. He was 40 years old.
Marc was born April 5,1978, in Grand Forks, ND, to Junella Vein and the late John Vein. He grew up on the family farm, where he learned to love hunting, farming and the value of hard work, a value that enabled him to become a successful entrepreneur and a truly exceptional family man and friend.
After completing high school in 1996, he went on to attend Mayville University, Lake Region Community College, and fulfilled his early and passionate vocation when he completed his chiropractic degree at Northwestern Health Sciences. It was there he met the love of his life, Alexa Sahlin. They were married July 30, 2005. Marc set up his practice, Fargo Spine and Rehabilitation, and began welcoming patients. His business grew and was successful as people responded to his genuine caring and professionalism. His large intuitive healing hands seemed to sense exactly where the pain was and he helped many alleviate or eliminate their pain.
Marc was an avid and respected member of his community, giving unstintingly of his time and talents to help his community. As a lifelong learner of many things, Marc also became a swim meet official, where he and Alexa were active together, as always, with and for their three beautiful children: Alaina, Haydn and Nora.
Marc was the best of friends and he had many of them – true, meaningful friends with whom Marc shared deep and lasting bonds. From childhood to even those of short duration, people were instantly drawn to him. Both men and women responded to his humor and honesty; women instantly knew they were respected, just as he respected his beloved wife, mother and all the women of his family. All knew here was a man of trustworthiness and honor.
Marc and Alexa were the family that people looked to as the ideal to which to aspire – a marriage that was the truest of partnerships based on a deep and abiding love that evolved and kept evolving, deepening each year into a wondrous thing to witness. As Marc had written on two champagne glasses he gave to Alexa to when he proposed: “Two hearts bound together by ever changing, everlasting love”- this was the love they shared together.
And this is how they were as a family, closer than close, always together, whether watching their children swim, taking them to the family farm, the lake or anywhere on their many adventures, it was always together. Never has there been a family so totally devoted to each other.
Marc Vein – beloved husband, father, son, brother, family member to many, healer and cherished friend to all – left a legacy of love that will endure forever.
