A Stuttgart man died of an apparent heart attack while out
hunting last Friday near Point DeLuce.
Grover Leon Farmer, 85, left the Big Ten Hunting Camp slightly
after 3 p.m., riding an ATV. A few minutes later, another hunter
riding the same trail found Farmer lying beside the trail. His
four-wheeler was overturned, and he had a slight cut on his face.
Arkansas County Sheriff’s Department deputies responded to the
scene, and Arkansas County deputy coroner Jess Essex pronounced
Farmer dead on the scene.
Sheriff’s Department investigator Tommy Trussell said that Farmer
had apparently died of natural causes.
Farmer was a long-time area supervisor for Arkansas Power & Light
(now Entergy Arkansas) and had been an auxiliary deputy for the
Sheriff’s Department for many years.
