Marty Stumbaugh Floor Speech
Honoring the life of Cabot, Arkansas firefighter Marty Stumbaugh
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the memory of Marty Stumbaugh from Cabot, Arkansas.
A "hero" is someone who is admired for their courage, nobility, and service to others. Firefighters have long been admired for these traits, and Marty Stumbaugh was a shining example. His life's work was to serve his community as a firefighter. Marty did his job each day with a sense of responsibility and honor.
In addition to serving his community fighting fires, Marty was a former Justice of the Peace in Lonoke County and Constable in York Township. Marty was President of the Cabot Professional Firefighters Association and a member of the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church.
Family was the most important part of Marty's life. Marty loved his wife Mindy and their two children Mason and Macy more than the world. Additionally, Marty had close relationships with his siblings Netta, Karla, Robbin, Corky, Stubby and Stewart.
Mr. Speaker, please join me and the entire community of Cabot, Arkansas in honoring the life and service of Marty Stumbaugh.
