Marc Christian McGovern, age 51, passed away on January 6, 2022, in Corydon, Indiana, surrounded by family and loved ones. Born in Covington, Kentucky, on February 28, 1970, he is the son of Charles and Linda McGovern.
He enjoyed the simple things in life with Brenda, his loving girlfriend of 23 years, and their sweet dog, Autumn. He loved cooking, fishing, NASCAR, doing yard work, spending time with family and friends, playing Euchre and Hearts, and listening to music. He called his mom frequently to share with her about his life and to catch up on all the family news. He held a variety of jobs in his life but was particularly interested in auto mechanics, spending hours working on others’ cars for the joy of using his skills and being of service. He was known for his kind-heartedness and helping others in need. Like everyone, he had struggles, but he will be remembered for how he always picked himself back up and strived for better. Throughout his life he maintained a strong belief in God.
Marc is survived by his two daughters, Kayla McGovern and Lacey Anderson; grandson, Jax Malatesta; parents, Charles and Linda McGovern; brother, Jason (Sarah) McGovern; sisters, Christy (Christina) McGovern, Meredith (Randee) McGovern-Eimer, and Madonna McGovern; and girlfriend, Brenda McMullan. He also leaves behind uncles, aunts, nephews, a niece, cousins, and friends who will miss him dearly. He is preceded in death by grandparents, Vivian Smith, James (Evelyn) Smith, Shirley McGovern, and Charles A. (Leetta) McGovern.
