Bailey Gene Horn, 94, of Beaumont, died Thursday, March 2, 2023.  He was born on August 26, 1928, in Kirbyville, Texas, to Mattie Phillips Horn and William Asa Horn.  Mr. Horn proudly served his country in the United States Army.

Mr. Horn graduated from Spurger High School, then worked various jobs including work as a telegraph operator for the railroad, as a stevedore at the Brownsville Docks, and as a pipefitter for Local 195 for thirty plus years at Neches Butane.  He was a Master Mason at Snow River Masonic Lodge #385 for over fifty years, a member of the Spurger Lions Club and an active member of First Baptist Church in Spurger.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Mr Bailey had such a sweet spirit. We loved riding over on the buggy to visit with him and Ms Joyce. He tried to teach me how to grow those huge delicious jubilee watermelons. He was always working around the place in Spurger and kept it immaculate but would always stop for a visit when we dropped by. I will miss them both but I know they are rejoicing in heaven
