In Episode 188, I speak with Marc Hoover of Batavia, Ohio and host of the “Catch My Killer” podcast, as he shares his father’s life and death with us, his struggle with cigarettes and horrors of his service in the Vietnam War.
Marc has been a great friend of my podcast, helping along the way since we both started our shows in 2019.
His show, Catch My Killer, is available on all platforms and on his personal site also. Visit here to learn more how he helps survivors of homicide victims get the word out about the unsolved murders of family members as well as to find missing persons.
In this episode, we speak about his father, Michael Hoover, who was a committed husband and father who suffered emotionally from the time he served in the Vietnam War and used cigarettes to cope throughout the rest of his life.
Marc tells how his father fought many demons from what happened in the war and shares several incidents there which shaped him and changed him.
Here is a memorable photo of Marc with his father on a beach in the Florida panhandle:
But it was cigarettes which ultimately caused his health to decline.

Thank you Marc for joining me!
Additional Notes – Some things that will help along this journey to ease the pain:
To release all that is going on inside you, pick up my journal collection – ‘my journal’ – ‘my grief journal’ – ‘my gratitude journal’ – ‘my remembrance journal’. With several different covers, you can mix and match as you prefer. Don’t let all your pain keep floating in your mind. Get it down on paper in these special journals I created just for you as you grieve a loved one’s death or the anticipated death of someone you love.
If you are having an especially difficult time emotionally, I recommend you speak with a specialist at a hotline near you. Here you will find hotlines all around the world. Trained counselors are there to listen, free of charge, to what’s going on with you. Take advantage of their great kindness. Vent with an objective individual. You don’t have to be ‘suicidal’ to call them, but if you are, that’s the best place to call. Don’t hestitate!
For parents and teens, there is an amazing resource where you can email or text counselors for help at The Boys Town National Hotline! Outstanding assistance for your children and you. You can also dial 988 for assistance.

You can order your Bach’s Rescue Remedy from most health food stores, either in person or online. Remember, these do have alcohol in them.
I use the Rescue Remedy 20ml drops but they have spray and other versions which might work better for you. And…they also have products to calm pets, too.
