He had two older siblings; his sister, Marcella Nulph Barton and his brother, Forrest Nulph. He grew up on a farm south of Shelley where he loved playing with cousins and learned to work hard.

Emmett worked for Challenge Creamery hauling milk for the first few years of their marriage. In 1957 at the age of 29, he and his
brother Forrest landed a contract with The R.T. French Company to haul potatoes and Nulph Bros. Trucking was established. They hauled potatoes for many years and had a very successful business.
