Man dies from gunshot wound

A Benton man has died as a result of injuries suffered while he was hunting last month.

John Harmon Manasco Jr., 57, was hunting with his wife near Linn Creek Road on Nov. 17 when the shooting occurred.

He and his wife owned a house in the area that they were getting ready to move to when they retired, according to neighbors.

Manasco died from his injuries on Nov. 28 at a Little Rock hospital.

Manasco is survived by his wife, Mariglen, his father, two sons, a daughter, two sisters, a brother and six grandchildren. A memorial service was held Tuesday in Benton.
