Marty was a devout follower of Jesus Christ, and he tried his best to live his life in accordance with the model that the Savior had provided for him.
In addition to that, he was very active in the Turkeytown United Methodist Church where he attended regularly. In 1994, he made the decision to accept the free gift of salvation that God was offering to those who would accept it while he was attending a community revival in Hokes Bluff. God was offering salvation to anyone who would accept it. His birth took place on March 8th, 1956, and the city of Akron, which is situated in the state of Ohio, is where he was born. Because his father had been given a promotion within the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, in the year 1968, his family uprooted their lives and moved to Turkeytown, Alabama. The reason for this move was because his father had been given a promotion.
