Horace was a native of Woodside, Louisiana, and a longtime resident of Melville, Louisiana.  He passed away on Saturday, February 4, 2023, at his home surrounded by his family.

Horace was a Christian man of the Methodist faith.  He worked in the logging business for many years.  He would do woodworking projects, welding work and mechanic repairs in his spare time.  After his retirement, he enjoyed sitting outside on his chair drinking his coffee and watching the squirrels and birds.  He will always be remembered as a devoted husband, father, and grandfather who will be deeply missed.

I have seen all the works which have been done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity, a futile grasping and chasing after the wind.         Ecclesiastes 1:14

He was preceded in death by his parents, Alley Dupont and Una Fontenot Dupont; his grandparents: Joseph and Beulah Dupont; and Armagine and Bertha Fontenot; and son-in-law, Joseph Bass.

Pallbearers will be Tanner Dupont, Timothy Dupont, Jr., Ron Dupont, Paul Ellis, Austin Lee, and Chris Ellis.
