  1. Chris Russell. says:

    Nick was an outgoing good hearted man. He loved his family and friends and would give you the shirt off his back. He truly will be missed by me and many others. Flying was his passion besides fishing and he wouldn’t want it any other way. My condolences to his family. Good bye my friend.

  2. My husband and I attended the funeral for Nick Busch last
    Friday. On the way to the cemetery the cars driving in the opposite
    direction all stopped and waited until the procession passed. What wonderful people live in Arkansas to show their respect for those who have passed on. Thank you all.
