Horace “Jr.” McGinnis

Mineral Wells Index

— Horace “Jr.” McGinnis, 70, of Mineral Wells, passed away after a brief illness. Born in Starkville, MS, the son of the late Horace McGinnis Sr and Francis Upchurch McGinnis.

Jr. was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather; and to many he was a friend, mentor, and employer in the Mineral Wells area. He left a distinct impression on anyone he came in contact with; whether it was through being employed by him or a casual conversation with him in crossing paths.  He was the kind of guy who would give you the shirt off his back as long as you put it to proper use. He indeed will be missed by so many in his community.

He leaves behind wife Edith McGinnis; sons Bodie McGinnis and wife Kelly and Allen McGinnis; daughters Sharron Johnson and husband Greg and Scarlette Morgan and husband David; grandchildren Brandon McGinnis and wife Brandy, Crystal Forbes, Taylor Morgan, Cassidy Morgan, Chelsea Morgan and Sara Mendez and husband Jonathan; great-great grandchildren Braley McGinnis, Preston Mendez, Braylon McGinnis, Liam Mendez, Case Johnson, Jetz Ahra Johnson and Ava McGinnis; step-children: Michael Johnson and wife Mary and Eric Johnson and wife Chelsea and best friend Joe Ray Irvin.

He was preceded in death by parents Horace Sr and wife Francis, L.T McGinnis, Freeman McGinnis and Tutler and Mary McGinnis.  

Visitation will be Friday, Jan. 11, from 6-8 p.m. in the chapel; funeral service is Saturday, Jan. 12, at 2 p.m. at the First Baptist Church; burial will follow at Woodland Park Cemetery.
