DOVER - Martin J. McGough, 40, died on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, at Tufts Medical Center following a brief illness. Born July 8, 1977, in Portland, Maine, he was the son of James McGough and Barbara Keefe.
Martin was employed at the National Visa Center in Portsmouth. He was an active member of St. John's United Methodist Church of Dover, and also volunteered with Dover Baseball and Dover Youth Softball.
He was an avid Red Sox fan, but most of all Martin loved his wife April, his daughters Ella, and Lily, and his golden retriever Tessie. Nothing was more important to Martin than his family and friends, his love of his country, military and first responders. Through many years of coaching, Martin prided himself on his extensive knowledge of "the game", and fostered lasting relationships with the children he coached and their families. Martin was a master at making life-long friends in all circles of his life.
