Marty Emmons

Belden- William Martin “Marty” Emmons, 50, passed away Saturday, May 29, 2021 at his home. Marty was born on October 4, 1970, in Memphis, Tennessee. After graduating from Tupelo High School, he attended Indian River State College on a tennis scholarship and then attended The University of Mississippi. Marty spent his career in the furniture industry, owner of Innovative Design, and currently was an account manager for High Rock Fabrics. Marty adored spending time with his loving family and his most treasured moments were watching his children excel in the many activities they pursued. As well as sharing his love and passion for Ole Miss sports with his family and friends.


Marty’s greatest joy was being with his wife of 26 years, the light of his life, EC, and their loving children Chappell and William. Anyone who knew both Marty and EC knew that where EC went, Marty would soon follow. They were a golden pair and anyone who was blessed to be around them saw that their love was a unique and beautiful bond.
