ENID — Funeral service for Nolan James Hurst will be 2 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10, 2012, at Alva First Baptist Church, with Pastor Mark McDonald officiating. Interment will be in Alva Municipal Cemetery under the direction of Marshall Funeral Home, Alva.

Nolan James Hurst, son of James Ernest and Cherie Elise (Fisher) Hurst, came into this world on Dec. 11, 2008, in Enid, Okla., and left to run and play in Heaven on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, just five days before his 4th birthday.

Nolan’s life was short, but he brought great joy and touched many lives while here. Nolan was a fighter and did not let frequent illness stop him from living his life to the fullest. Nolan loved music and had an infectious giggle. He attended Head Start and he loved being around other children. His favorite animal was a shark and he thought this word was funny. He loved to play with his younger brother, Gage, to have his sister, Abigail, sing to him, and his sister, Alaina, hold him. He was the light of his parent’s life.

Nolan was preceded in death by his grandmother, Linda Hicks, and great-grandparents, Ray and Jean Gourley, Gilbert Fisher, Dorothy White and Jim Hurst.

Nolan is survived by his loving parents, Jim and Cherie Hurst of Alva; sisters, Alaina and Abigail, and brother Gage, all of the home; maternal grandparents, Franklin and Cheryl Murrow and Harry Fisher, both of Alva; paternal grandparents, James and Hope Hurst of Woodward; great-grandmother, Phyllis Fisher of Alva; a particularly special aunt, Chenae Felton of Alva; and numerous other family and friends that will miss him greatly.

In leu of flowers, a love fund has been set up at BancCentral in Nolan’s name to help defray final expenses.
