Funeral services for Hunt County Judge John Horn are set for Friday. The Herald Banner reported that county offices will be closed so that county employees may attend the services.
Horn unexpectedly died over the weekend. His death has left a question of filling his seat. Horn was running for re-election in November. He was unopposed on the ballot. County Commissioner Jim Latham told the Herald Banner that Horn’s name will remain on the ballot and that a new county judge will be appointed in 2019.
