Obituary

Marty Eli Phelps, 51, of Alexandria was called home by his Lord and Savior on Friday, May 31, 2019 in Community Hospital, Anderson after a brief illness.

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.

A celebration of Marty’s life will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. in Whetsel Funeral Service, Alexandria with Bud Whetsel as Celebrant. Burial will follow in the IOOF Cemetery, Alexandria. Friends are invited to call at the funeral home on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and one hour prior to the service on Thursday.

Whetsel Funeral Service is honored to care for Marty and the Phelps and Divens families.

I was Marty's boss at Vitran just before and during the time they were sold. Didn't take long after I started working there for me to realize how good of a person Marty was. Our relationship quickly went from boss/worker to friends. Marty always talked about his family and how much they meant to him. Truly sorry for all of you to lose this great family man.
