Marty was born on October 7, 1962 in Rochester to James and Lois Parrott. After graduating from high school, Marty earned his associate’s degree and began his company, Parrott Electric.

Soon after starting his family, Marty built his home alongside his father and moved the family into the new home in 2001. Many wonderful memories were made in the home he built. Marty was a dedicated father who always made sure to support his sons in all their endeavors, including cheering them on at their football games. He also enjoyed spending time at the family cottage on Mullett Lake in Indian River, MI. Marty always enjoyed playing football and baseball with the entire family. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing with Charlie and Jimmy when they were growing up. Above everything, Marty cherished his family and time he spent with them. He will be remembered for his dedication, strong will, sense of humor and caring ways. He was a truly courageous man who would let nothing stop him, even into the final days of his life. His smile and kindness will truly be missed by all who knew him, but memories of him will continue on in all who loved him.
