Unpretentious lifestyle brought General Big A.H. Nasution until the end of his life, 6 September 2000. He did not inherit the family's material wealth, but wealth of experience of struggle and idealism. House in Jalan Teuku Umar, Jakarta, still looks dull, never renovated. But God bless him long life, 82 years old.

Tapanuli man is more to be a devout idealist general worship. He was never tempted to go into a business that could give her material wealth. If there is a general difficulty of clean water daily in his home, Mr. Nas was. Hidden hands cut off the flow of water piped to his home, shortly after Mr. Nas retired from the military. To meet the needs of daily water, Nasution's family was forced to make a well in the back of the house. The well was still there until now.
