Dr. Martin "Marty" Richard Morman, the only child of the late Richard and Dorothy Morman, was born on August 4, 1951 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He grew up in Augusta, Georgia where he inherited a rich history of faith, family, character and leadership. Marty went to be with the Lord on January 16, 2012, in Atlanta, Georgia.
Marty always had a quest for knowledge and was one of the first Black students to integrate Aquinas High School in Augusta, Georgia where he was an honor student and star basketball player. He matriculated to Hampton University and later to Georgia State University where in 1975 he earned his Bachelor of Business Administration in Economics, with a minor in Decision Sciences. He continued his studies and in 1988 received his Doctorate of Philosophy in Economics with a concentration in Econometrics from Georgia State University.
Marty's professional career included employment at Equifax, Inc. as Assistant Vice-President for Planning where he developed, monitored and evaluated recommendations for the Corporate Office and as Director of Research where he directed the design and implementation of special studies on forecasting, territorial and marketing analysis, pricing, new ventures, informational and technology strategies. He also directed the design and development of databases for commercial and industrial customers as a marketing analyst at Georgia Power Company.
After leaving his corporate career, Marty took his talents to the classroom as an Adjunct Professor at Georgia State University and Georgia Institute of Technology. His illustrious career continued as an Associate Professor at Morehouse College where he spent over 20 years in the Department of Business Administration. One legacy that Marty leaves is the infamous Business Policy course legendary among his students. He was committed to preparing young Black men to excel in the field of business, and the rigorous case competitions were a hallmark of his course. His unwavering dedication and support of his students will be missed but never forgotten.
Marty was a man of many passions. A collector of record albums, he enjoyed all genres of music. He could also be found in the kitchen mastering his new found culinary skills that included pasta dishes, barbeque ribs and a mean pot of gumbo. A favorite pastime of Marty's was the intellectual banter on any number of topics, especially sports and politics.
Marty loved his family and his faith. He was a devoted member of The Basilica of Sacred Heart of Jesus, where he served in numerous ministries including the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the Parish Finance Council. On many Sundays, he also enjoyed his positions as Commentator, Lector or Eucharistic Minister for over thirty years.
As a loving husband and father, Marty leaves to cherish his memory, his wife, Mignon, daughter Angelica, son Martin "Alexander", sister-in-law, Shelia Williams; nieces, nephews, cousins and goddaughters, Nickie and Norlethia, as well as a host of family, friends, students and colleagues. His dedication to education, support of friends, devout love of God and family is a true testament to the man we lovingly call Marty.

God has not promised skies always blue, Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through.
God has not promised sun without rain, But God has promised, strength for the day,
Rest for the laborer, light for the way, Grace for the trial, help from above, Unfailing sympathy, undying love.
-Author unknown
