Nick was born in Portales, NM on May 22, 1985 to Jim and Kay Hurley. From an early age he was involved in physical activities including martial arts, archery, hunting, fishing, camping, rock climbing and rappelling. He even jumped out of a perfectly good airplane once. Nick was also an artist, creating many wonderful wood cravings and metal sculptures.
Like everybody, Nick had his faults, but his strengths far outweighed his weaknesses as so many people whose lives he touched will attest. He was a hard working, sensitive and caring individual who considered honor, integrity and responsibility as more than just words. Nick was, in many ways, a remarkable young man and while his presence will assuredly be missed, his memory will just as surely remain with us throughout our lives.
Nick is survived by one son, Nicholas Jordan Wall-Hurley and one daughter Maryah Elizabeth Wall- Hurley of Las Cruces, NM; father Jim Hurley of Las Cruces, NM; mother, Kay Hurley of Arlington, TX; three brothers; Michael Wright (Jennifer); Damien Hurley (Amanda) all of Tallahassee, Florida, Gene Hurley (Rehanna) of River Oaks, TX, and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends.
Nick is preceded in death by his sister, Stefani Nicole Hurley of Arlington, TX.
A memorial service is scheduled for January 4, 2020 at 1:00 PM at Getz Funeral Home Chapel, 1410 E. Bowman Ave. Las Cruces, NM. Nick’s Uncles Arlie Eicke, Terry Tribble and Wayne Fair will officiate the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Nick's life.
