Archie was the son of Jim Archie "Mosie" and Pearl Faye (Goins) Hursman.
His siblings were Jim Robert Hursman and Sylvia M. (Hursman) Wilson.

He married his high school sweetheart, Phyllis Marguerette Eskew, May 26, 1950 in Vandalia, Mo.
Archie and Phyllis raised their three children in the Geneseo, IL. area.

After Archie retired from the Farmall Works in Rock Island, IL., the couple moved back to Vandalia, MO.
They enjoyed camping and traveling across the country.

Besides being an avid fisherman and hunter, "Papa" Archie was a great story teller.
One of Archie's favorite sayings was, "I'm as hard as a pine knot" - never giving into defeat.

He leaves behind his wife of close to 65 years; a daughter and son-in-law; two sons and their wives; 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
