Billy Mack Bourn

Billy Mack Bourn passed away peacefully into the loving arms of his savior and is joined again with the company of his departed friends, family, and his beloved , Lillian.
Billy was born Oct.31, 1934, in Oakvale to John Maxie and Myrtle Polk Bourn. He attended Oakvale school for most of his school years and graduated from Monticello High School in 1953. He served in the Army and spent time in Germany prior to joining the U.S. Postal Service in Jackson in 1958 and on Aug. 2, 1958, he married the love of his life, Lillian Garrett.
They made their home in Jackson for 30 years and had four children, Jocelyn, Cris, Stefan, and Anna. After retiring from a successful career with the postal service, he and Lil moved back to Lawrence County and spent many peaceful years surrounded by their loving friends and family. He greatly enjoyed his life in the country, mowing his grass, feeding his fish, and being outdoors. His six grandchildren and many nieces and nephews cherished their time with him in the “country,” exploring the woods, creeks, and fishing in old pond.
Billy is survived by his children, Jocelyn Doran (Mike), Cris Bourn (Mary Ann), Stefan Bourn (Lydia), and Anna Robinson (Steve); grandchildren, Ben Cain, Lee Cain, Christian Bourn, Olivia Bourn, Jessica Bourn, and Reed Robinson; great-grandchildren, Oliver Cain, Lily Cain, and Sophie Cain; and siblings, Kenny Bourn, Carolyn Harvey, Johnny Bourn, Tommy Bourn, David Bourn, Gordon Bourn, and Richard Bourn.
Billy will be missed by many; he was a kind, humble, and generous man who loved his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
God blessed Billy in his final years by sending him loving caregivers. Billy and his family are very thankful for the love, care, and support that his caregivers gave to him and his family. Mary Bridges, Hattie Pittman, Jennifer Blanden, and Jason Buckley were his “Angels on Earth.” Thank you very much.
A funeral service was held Jan. 22 at Wilson Funeral Home, with graveside services following in Monticello Municipal Cemetery. Rev. Mike Evans officiated, with Wilson Funeral Home in charge of the arrangements.
