DATELINE: KINGS MOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA
Dr. Martin "Marty" Stallings
Dr. Martin "Marty" Wade Stallings, 80, of Kings Mountain, NC, passed away on December 26, 2023 at Atrium Health in Pineville, NC. Born in Sylacauga, AL, he was the son of the late Martin Lacey Stallings and Ruby Griffin Stallings. He served his country honorably in the U.S. Air Force. Marty earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, then attended medical school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he also completed his residency. His dedication and passion for medical education never ceased, and he taught physician's assistants for many years. Marty practiced medicine honorably for over 52 years, more than 40 of which he spent in Kings Mountain. He was fiercely loyal to his patients and delivered unparalleled, personal care--when he knew one of his patients was ill, he went above and beyond to meet their needs. He served his community and patients with care and dignity until his last day. Active in the community, Marty served terms as president of both the Kiwanis Club and the Cleveland County Medical Society and enjoyed spending his free time volunteering. He was a member of Central Methodist Church. He loved sports and was a fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide and Kings Mountain High School football programs; he supported the Mountaineers by maintaining membership in the Kings Mountain Touchdown Club. Marty loved dancing and visiting the beach, and he enjoyed both activities to the fullest with his wife, Denese, whom he loved being with more than anything. He was a loving father to his children and was steadfastly proud of his grandchildren. Marty will be missed dearly by both the wider community he served and by his beloved family and friends.
