Marc Daniel Lightell

October 9, 1946 — January 25, 2021

Marc Daniel Lightell, 74, of New Philadelphia joined our Lord and Savior Monday, January 25, 2021 following a brief illness.

Born October 9, 1946 in Dover, Marc was the son of the late Henry Bardelli and Frances DeSerio Bardelli.

Marc proudly served his country in the United States Navy.

He married his loving and devoted wife, Rita Ann Stuver on June 4, 1970 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in New Philadelphia.

Over the years, Marc and Rita operated two service stations, one of them being “Marc’s Southside 76 Service Station” in New Philadelphia. In 1985, they opened Crystal Springs Water Co. LLC in New Philadelphia, which continues today as a family business.

Marc was a man known for his great strength, warm smile, and helpfulness to anyone he could find. He was known as a man with the utmost integrity, a true patriot to his country, an unwavering dedication to his family and wife and most importantly, a love for the Almighty God. He trusted in Jesus and was humble before the Lord, revering him daily for his blessings. His principles were unshakable and his family was honored with the privilege to learn from him what it means to be a man of Godly Character.

Marc is survived by his wife of 50 years, Rita; sons Marc (Lori), Clint (Sandy), and Joseph (Genia) Lightell; grandchildren, Lars, Taran, Clint David (Jenn), Aviana, Christian, Amelia, Abigail, Dominic and Vincenzo; as well as six great-grandchildren. Also surviving are his sisters, Sondra (Keith) Davis and Mary Beth (Randy) Coleman; his in-laws, Sandra (Tom) Taylor, Ed (Rita) Stuver, and Shelley (Mark) Petrullo; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Marc is preceded in death by his parents and one granddaughter.

A private Mass of Christian burial will be held.

The family requests that donations in Marc’s name be made to Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 139 3rd Street NE, New Philadelphia, OH 44663.
