The Saline Courier - - BUSINESS -

Marty Eu­gene Polk, of Sheri­dan, was born March 17,

1962 in Marvell, the son of Vivian Anne Whit­son Polk and the late Bobby Lee Polk. To say that Marty loved life was a huge un­der­state­ment. He lived ev­ery mo­ment of his 57 years to the fullest with his “Live Well, Laugh Of­ten, Love Much” per­son­al­ity. He was a mem­ber of First Bap­tist Church of Sheri­dan and was the road su­per­in­ten­dent for Saline County. Among his many in­ter­ests, mu­sic and sports topped the list. He had played bass in church and also for­merly with the Adrian Liv­ingston Band, and was cur­rently “lead” bass player with Exit 123. He be­longed to Arkansas High School Fast Pitch As­so­ci­a­tion, Arkansas Of­fi­cials As­so­ci­a­tion, for of­fi­ci­at­ing foot­ball and soft­ball. He leaves a rich legacy of good mem­o­ries, of a great man.
