Marc Thomas Vertin, 68, of Newburgh IN, passed away on Thursday, Sept 12, 2019 at St. Vincent Medical Center in Indianapolis.

Marc was born in Los Angeles, CA on March 27, 1951. He leaves behind his loving wife, Sue Vertin; children, Cara Vertin Gabbard (Ken), Jason Vertin (Christy), Christina Vertin-Menendez (Hector), Elizabeth Vertin (Jeff Elliott); 11 beautiful grandchildren he loved with all his heart; his sister, Beth Vertin, and his mother, Daphne Doris Vertin, along with many close wonderful cousins and good friends.

Marc served in the US Navy from 1969-1973 as a Cryptographer on the U.S.S. Blue Ridge in Vietnam.

Marc had another family in Rotary, he was the epitome of a Rotarians Rotarian. When he served as District Governor for Rotary District 5240 from 2002-2003 in California his motto was “It Can Be Done.” It was more than just words; he lived his motto and never gave up going up after his goals. It was this motto along with his heart that helped his District raise $1.2 million towards End Polio.

When Marc moved to Indiana in 2010 he wanted to find another purpose to serve as he did with Rotary. This is how he soon came to find and become a member of the “Knights of Columbus," through his Church.

Marc was a loving family man, true friend to anyone he met and could share a laugh with, a loyal Dodger fan through and through, and man that always wanted to give back and serve others. It would be nice if the World could stop for a min to remember this man, however there is a gaping hole that we don’t know how to fill. We are all hurting because you lost your fight and left us, for you the pains are no longer, you paid your price and it’s your turn to rest. Until we meet again!
