About Marty Lee Herron, Jr.
This was taken @ Crater Lake Oregon the summer of 2015.
Our Lord is so very good to us to provide for us to all be
together for a family vacation.

I was born to Marty and Polly Herron on June 19, 1954 in Maryville, Tennessee, the first of four sons.
Born in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, one of the most beautiful places on earth! Visit sometime, you'll be glad you did. There are many wonderful people there. If you meet a Herron (or Hearon) I am probably related.
On March 21, 1981 I married Victoria (Vicky) Ruth Jackson from Toronto, Ontario. Vicky has been my closest friend and strongest supporter. I praise our Lord for her. She is a wonderful wife, and I am so grateful for her love, work and support.
Our Lord blessed us with five wonderful children,:
Christiana Ruth Charisa Rachel Careth Pollyana
Caleb Philip Colin Charles
In August of 1997 our family of seven moved to the northwest suburbs of Chicago to serve with the Mount Prospect Bible Church. Our site is mp-bc.org. You can listen to past messages by going to http://mp-bc.org/multi.html.
We lived in the northwest suburbs of Chicago from 1997 to 2016. Before moving there we lived in Oakland, Maryland, where we served with the Pleasant View Baptist Church for 13 years.
* Charisa, our second born, lives in Denver.
She married Travis Richardson on July 1, 2012.
Our first grand child, Sage Vanessa,
was born on September 17, 2014.
Our second grand daughter, Gracelyn Polly
was born October 9, 2016.
Please pray for them.
* Careth lives and works in southern California.
She is the head women's basketball coach at St. Catherine's College.
She is our third born child.
* Colin is our youngest. He turned 25 on 1-2-2017.
He lives and works in Denver.

We sure are spread out and busy.
Life doesn't slow down does it?
