Paul Michael Kovach Sr., 78, of Mentor, passed away Sunday, March 15, 2020, at his daughter’s residence in North Carolina from a tragic accident.
Born July 27, 1941, in Cleveland and was a longtime resident of Lake County.
He was a U.S. Army veteran and after years of employment at White Motors, Paul began his career with the U.S. Department of Defense from which he retired in 2004.
Paul was the beloved husband of 53 years to Mary P. (nee Amato) Kovach; loving father of Tina M. (David) Kelly, Paul M. Kovach Jr., and Joseph S. (Sheila) Kovach; cherished grandfather of Ashley (fiancé John Coppedge), Kaitlin, Kyle and Dominic; brother of Donna Scalia; uncle to many nieces and nephews; and best friend to Gary May.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Michael and Anne (nee Mushinko) Kovach.
Not only a legend in his own mind, but in everyone else’s as well, he lived to make everyone laugh. Always quick to lend a helping hand. He loved hunting, fishing, playing golf, and working with his sons, but most of all spending time with his friends and family, especially his grandchildren. He was a good friend to many, and was always the life of the party. He will never be forgotten. “YA-ZA-BROTHER!”
Family and friends are asked to meet 9:30 a.m. Saturday, July 18, for a Celebration of Life Mass, at St. John Vianney Church, 7575 Bellflower Road, Mentor.
In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105, would be appreciated.
Arrangements are entrusted to McMahon-Coyne-Vitantonio Funeral Homes in Willoughby and Mentor.

Where do you start..Shawn and I have only known Paul six short years..he made us feel as though we've known him a lifetime. One for always a funny story or a joke.. he lit up every room he entered.. We are so going to miss hearing his footsteps coming in our side door and up the stairs.. the pain is real and crushing..he will forever be on our minds and in our heart always. Until we meet again Paul.. Mary, you have been on our hearts for this last week, we've been praying God wraps his arms around you and your children and give you peace and comfort. Love Shawn and Penny
