I am so sad to have heard the news of Marc's passing, which of course I had to hear during the deer hunting season. Marc and I often crossed paths in my earlier years, whether he was driving us to sporting events in high school, on the marsh hunting or DAILY for the five summers I worked at the Ice Cream Station in Horicon. Marc and Gayl were my most "dedicated" customers and always came with a smile regardless of the weather. So many great memories on and off the Horicon Marsh (Marc's second home). I remember seeing his father, his son and himself during this deer hunting week, year after year on the State Farm. Most of the time, dragging a deer off. Marc was such an amazing person, husband, father and friend. You won't find a better role model. You will be missed Marc and I wish the family peace and many amazing memories forever. ~Mike

I'm so sorry for your loss. I met Marc a few times when I took the boat tour near the marsh. He had a lovely personality and a wealth of knowledge. I also saw him on Around the Corner with John McGivern. I'm happy that I can see him occasionally there and still learn from him.

My deepest sympathy to the Zuelsdorf family, all his brothers and sisters and to his Mother. I grew up next door to the family on Main street. I have a lot of fond memories of marc. What I remember the most that Marc's favorite song was Thunderstruck. That song always put a smile on his face. Rest in peace my friend, you will be sadly missed.

Gayl and family, Wishing you patience, Love and steadfastness for all of the changes and those yet to come. I have only fond memories of being in your tour facility to learn, to enjoy bringing visitors, and to participate in birding events. Marc in one of those gentle people who taught me to be a quiet presence in the midst of our wildlife. I was spurred on to learn more and to appreciate the sacredness of our Marsh Lands. That has been his influence on me, and I am grateful to have known him.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Marc was an excellent marsh tour guide. Several years ago I took Sister Annina on one of Marc tours. She was our principal at St. Malachy's. She loved the tour and seeing Marc and even had him spell Cormorant-- did I spell that bird's name correctly?

Gayl and family -- I am so sorry hear about Marc's passing. I remember him taking us out on the boat and me doing the video many many years ago. Such an inspiration and service you all provided! Thinking of you all and many hugs of comfort and peace.
Don Quintenz left a message on September 19, 2021:
Marc was an inspiration for all that went out into the Marsh with him. He was the highlight of the trips I organized through the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center to the marsh. I never met anyone who could tell what species of duck was flying over the marsh so far away that it was hard to even see the bird.

Our deepest sympathy to the Zuelsdorf family. Marc was an awesome bus driver. His kiddos miss him dearly. He not only drove his route daily (35 years-accident free); he would do charters, help with maintenance on the buses, plow snow or anything he could tinker with at the bus garage. Johnson Bus lost a great person. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Zuelsdorf family.

I am so sorry. I am glad I got to know him better at Randolph and I prayed for him. He provided a lot of joy with the boat tours, a true son of the Marsh.
Rich Appel left a message on September 16, 2021:
Marc was such an active member of our community and provided so much to our school: from driving our buses for sports teams, routes and field trips, running the chain gang at the football games and so many tours on the pontoon and telling us of his vast knowledge of the Horicon Marsh. Marc loved our students, coaches and staff and our school district. On a personal note, My father and family shared time on the Marsh tour with Marc and Gayl 1 week before he passed away a few years ago. Dad loved the tour and told me what a beautiful day he had and thanked Marc up and down for accommodating him and letting him spend one more day on the pontoon... Thoughts and prayers to the entire Zuelsdorf family. Rich & Tammy Appel and the School District of Horicon Staff and Students

Cruising in Marc's Bronco, pontoon runs on the Marsh, campfires at the Ledge and many more. One thing is for sure "Heaven just receive a new tour guide - the best ever. Marc may you rest in peace.
