Gene Edward Ainsworth, aged 84, a beloved resident of Vidor, Texas, passed away on Thursday, January 4th, 2024, at Harbor Hospice House in Beaumont. Born in Beaumont and a long-time resident of Vidor, Gene was a self-employed Master Carpenter who dedicated his life to his craft and left an indelible mark on his community.

His love for nature was reflected in the memories he created and the stories he shared with family and friends.

Additionally, he is survived by his sister, Francis Burr of Houston, TX. Gene leaves behind a legacy of love and family, as evidenced by the 17 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren who will continue to carry on his spirit. He was preceded in death by his wife, Sandra Ainsworth, his father H.P. Ainsworth and mother Irene "Nootsie" Mercer, his sister Patricia Cooper, and brother-in-law Gary Burr.
