James L. Bushart

August 16, 2019


James L. Bushart, Jr., 49, of Little Rock, went to be with the Lord on August 16, 2019. He was born on August 29, 1969 to Joyce Bushart Johnson and James L. Bushart, Sr. He was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit. He always had a great sense of humor. He was silly and laughed a lot. He was an avid music lover. He re-homed many animals in need. He was taken from his family and friends way too soon.

He is survived by his sister, Stacey Bushart Benegar (Ted); a nephew, Cody Benegar; two nieces, Sara and Anna Benegar; Uncle Jimmy Sandusky, Uncle Norman Anspach and Aunt Deloris (DeeDee) Martin; a host of cousins and many loving friends.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 31st, at 2:00 p.m. at Little Rock Funeral Home, 8801 Knoedl Ct. (NW corner I-630 and Barrow Rd.).
