Marian Clarence Hadella, "Mike," age 84 of Warren, died Friday, September 7, 2018 at the Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital, Warren Campus in Warren, Michigan. He was born February 7, 1934 in Detroit, son of the late Andrew and the late Clara (nee: Malkowski) Hadella.

Marian, known more affectionately to all as "Mike," was the doting and caring husband to his beloved Eileen for many years until her passing in 1995 at the young age of 61. But before Eileen went home to be with the Lord, these two lovebirds managed to eke out an immeasurable amount of joy in the sharing their lives together, raising a beautiful daughter, and the subsequent elation derived in becoming grandparents, too. So though he missed his precious helpmate, Mike was surrounded by a host of loved ones, which in time also grew to include his cherished great-grandchildren as well. Yet of all the love that filled Mike's heart, there was a very special and meaningful relationship he enjoyed with his canine companion, "Gremlin." Actually, Gremlin was his daughter's dog, but Sharon certainly had no problem sharing the wealth of Gremlin's compassion with her Dad,…and Mike just couldn't get enough of his furry friend. They formed quite the Dynamic Duo.

Yet Mike's love of the animal world wasn't satiated simply by Gremlin. He also had quite the yard which was a sanctuary for the countless birds and squirrels that came to visit each day. Mike had such a big heart for his little visitors that he made sure they were all fed and cared for every day. It's been rumored that one of his neighbor's was overheard sharing a conversation he heard one squirrel saying to the other, "who needs nuts when our buddy, Mike feeds us so well?" That's just the kind of guy everybody knew him to be.

Another of Mike's passions was in following his favorite Boys of Summer, the iconic Detroit Tigers. Win or lose, he was a loyal and dedicated fan who enjoyed watching his baseball team take the field and represent just part of what we know as our "Sports in the D." An All-American guy taking in an All-American sport,…it just doesn't get any better. Unless, of course, you're with family enjoying another occasion of making loving and lasting memories together. In that case, life was always exceptionally sweet and treasured.

Family meant the world to Mike, and each moment in their company was the stuff that dreams were made of. A loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Mike was extremely blessed through the lives of those he held most dear. In his own way, he leaves a legacy of love and care that is sure to be embraced with each reflection shared. He will truly be missed,…and loved. May he rest in peace.

Mike was the beloved husband of the late Eileen. Dear father of Sharon (the late Donald) Zettle. Beloved grandfather of Eric (Christina) Zettle and Shannon Zettle. Great grandfather of Bryant Zettle and Ava Zettle.

Mike will lie in state on Tuesday, September 11th from 10:00 am until the time of his Funeral Mass at 10:30 am at St. Faustina Catholic Church, 14025 E. 12 Mile Road in Warren.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 1/2 Mile Rd.) in Warren.
