Born in Sydney, he was the son of the late Daniel and Jessie (Chipman) MacPhee.
Marty was the owner of MacPhee’s Welding Ltd., Whitney Pier and a perfectionist when it came to his career as a welder. A man with a huge heart, Marty was very generous to his friends and to those in need. He enjoyed car racing and spending time fishing. Mechanically inclined, no matter what he turned his hand to, Marty could take it apart and put it back together.

He was Poppa to grandchildren, Kelsey, Carolann, Jessica, Jordan and Haley.
