This is how you honor a friend…
There was quite a site on the two main streets of Princeton on the morning of Friday, Jan. 8, 2016 when the funeral procession of Richard Maciej made its way from Christ Our Light Catholic Church to Oak Knoll Cemetery in Princeton.
Maciej was passionate about hunting deer, bear, turkey and duck and it showed as his casket made its way to its final resting place.
The casket of Richard Maciej was carried on a hay wagon pulled by a red tractor. Loved ones, dressed in blaze orange hunting clothes, sat alongside the casket, which was draped in the American flag and had a rack of deer antlers sitting on top of it.
Raised on a Little Falls dairy farm, the 1971 Little Falls High School grad joined the Army at age 17 and in his seven years in the service was a member of the Army Marksmanship Unit. Maciej became an expert M16 shooter and traveled to 37 countries while competing on the U.S. shooting team.
