A familiar Brownsville face will no longer be seen around town as James Weldon "Gordy" Houchin died last night at his home. Mr. Houchin, or just simply "Gordy" as he was known, had a number of health problems that eventually caught up with him.
Gordy was seen regularly on the streets of Brownsville, at a number of local businesses, or stopped somewhere having a friendly conversation with someone. We normally don't elaborate on obituaries, but we felt it was fitting to further mention Gordy, as he was a popular, eclectic figure who was kind to all. You can read his full obituary here.
