Northwest Arkansas Developer Gary Combs Dies
Gary Combs, a former northwest Arkansas real estate developer, died from cancer-related complications on Saturday, sources have told the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal.
Combs, 59, had been living out of the country while seeking treatment, the sources said, but died in a California hospital. A flamboyant and at times controversial figure, Combs became known as much for his legal battles with local banks and publicity stunts as for his wide-ranging business interests.
Most recently, Washington County Circuit Judge Kim Smith issued a warrant for Combs’ arrest. That was in July, and stemmed from an ongoing case with First State Bank. Click here to read the full story from our partners at ArkansasBusiness.com.
