Dylan Patrick Macuk, M.D., 26, of McHenry, IL, died July 15, 2018.
He was born at home on March 17, 1992, to Thomas and Maylee (Beigh) Macuk. He attended Montini Primary School, Montini Middle School and McHenry West High School. He graduated in 2010 and went on to Bradley University where he double majored in Math and Biology. He graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2014. He attended the University of Minnesota Medical School from 2014 to 2018. He received his M.D. on May 4th, 2018. He was accepted into the Indiana University Pathology Program where he began training in June 2018.
He will be remembered for his love of animals, especially cats; he leaves behind his beloved orange tabby, Tot. There's nothing he loved more than being outside, taking long hikes, and taking photos of the beauty of nature. He excelled at everything he did. He loved to read and shared books with his sisters. He loved board games, ping pong, games of strategy, and playing basketball in the driveway with his Dad. He had a quick sharp wit, and a wonderful sense of humor that most of the time went right over our heads. He was a generous, kind, sensitive soul who loved the Lord and lived his faith by always being willing to help others at school and home... as long as it didn't involve spiders.
He is survived by his Parents, Tom and Maylee (Beigh) Macuk; his sisters, Alyssa Kueffner (and husband, Rob), Emily Macuk (and fianc , Nick), and Grace Macuk; his Aunts and Uncles, Antonia (Chris) Olsen, Kris (Tom) Merrick, Denise (Vance) TerMaat, Dorn (Karen) Beigh, Lance Beigh, Annalise (Clyde) Bell, Vinn (Joan) Beigh, Melanie (Tony) Marquez; as well as many loving cousins.
Preceded in death by his grandparents, Tom and Lucille Macuk, Norman and Myriam Beigh; his cousin, Kristina Beigh; and his Uncle, Mike Macuk.
There was nothing more important to him than faith in God and his love for his family. He will be profoundly missed by everyone whose lives he touched.
