Dustin Hunter Drope, 28, of Paragould, passed away on Tuesday, June 15, 2021. He was born January 28, 1993. Hunter meant so much to so many. He loved his people and you knew it. He befriended anyone and didn't have to know you personally to lend you a hand. He lived life on the edge, even at a young age, but lived life to it's fullest. He said what he meant and meant what he said. He loved aviation, every aspect, from building it to flying it. He was the real deal.
