Marc Joseph Christiano, 56, of La Porte, passed away on Tuesday, August 10, 2021 at Northwest Health - La Porte.
Marc was born on June 27, 1965 in La Porte, IN.
On October 1, 2005 in La Porte, IN, he married Kimberly Luther, who survives. Also surviving are his daughter, Meghan Pointon of La Porte; stepdaughter, Megan (Eric Brown) Jerndt of St. Joseph, MI; aunt and uncle, Sheila and Jerry Fasbender of Indianapolis; mother-in-law, Marlyn Luther of La Porte; brother-in-law, Kevin (Amy) Luther; 3 cousins; 1 niece; 3 nephews; and 1 great-nephew.

Marc was the founder and co-owner of Village Supply, Inc. for 30 years. He proudly served 30 years as a member of the Center Township Volunteer Fire Department. He held various positions within the department, culminating with 8 years as Fire Chief.
In his teens, Marc competed in BMX races, winning several state races. That passion led into adulthood, where he could be found at any race track, especially NASCAR. Marc enjoyed sponsoring race drivers.
Marc enjoyed traveling to Chicago, where he could be found visiting their local restaurants, particularly Ricobene's and Portillo's. He would always stay in the hotel right across from their fire station so that he could see the trucks run their calls.
Anyone who knew Marc, knew how much he enjoyed each of his new vehicles!
