RA "Buster" Nance

December 30, 1926 - June 8, 2018

RA "Buster" Nance, 91, of N. 3rd Street, Carlsbad, NM, passed away Friday, June 8, 2018 at Carlsbad Medical Center. Graveside services are scheduled for 10:00 AM, Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at Carlsbad Cemetery with Terry McKean officiating. Denton-Wood Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
Buster was born December 30, 1926 in Gray County, Texas to Jesse and Gerty L. (Smith) Nance. He met and married Marvel Ann Crawford in 1948. The couple came to Carlsbad that year, working for John Deere tractors for over 10 years. He worked for International Equipment, N-REN Chemical and Carlsbad Wrecking throughout the years. Buster never really stopped working - he didn't have a hobby; he just worked until he physically couldn't anymore. He loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them. Buster was preceded in death by his parents, Jesse and Gerty Nance.
Survivors are his wife, Marvel Ann Nance of Carlsbad, NM; sons: Bobby Ray Nance and Steve W. Nance, both of Carlsbad, NM; three grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
