Marty was born in Anderson, IN on Aug. 21, 1967 and was the son of Eli and Artie Vee (Branum) Phelps-Kayse. On June 19, 2010 he married Kelly (Divens) Phelps.
Marty was employed as a diesel mechanic at R&L Carriers, Alexandria. He was an ordained minister of the Gospel and had served for a three year term as Pastor of the New Beginnings Church in Indianapolis.
He was an avid fisherman. He loved to spend time riding his motorcycle. But Marty’s greatest love was for his Savior, Jesus Christ and his family. He always enjoyed spending time with his wife and children and his brothers and sister and their families. But his real soft spot was being wrapped around his granddaughter Brooklynn’s little finger.
Left to carry on his legacy of love, is his wife, Kelly, his children, Jake (Oriana) Phelps, Johnathan Phelps, Kayden Phelps, Shelby Phelps and Kelsey (Joshua Millikan) Phelps; his brothers, Michael (Julie) Phelps and Marvin Phelps; his sister, Lisa (Larry) Reed and and his granddaughter, Brooklynn Millikan. Also surviving are several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
