Bailin Ray Hannon was born to Chet and Karina Hannon on June 28, 2017 in Bryan, Texas. Bailin was a fun loving, spirited boy and a cowboy at heart. Bailin wore a smile on his face every day, he never had a bad day and loved everyone he met. Anyone you ask would say that he stole their heart anytime they met him. His favorite colors were blue and lime green. You couldn’t catch him without his jeans, belt, boots, spurs, cowboy hat and even his vest and chaps if the mood hit. He was a proud member of the H&S Goat Slingers Ranch Rodeo team and was able to compete in his very first rodeo this past Saturday with his father Chet and brother JB, running his horse down the arena to compete with his team and by doing so, he will be able to complete the 2020 season with his team. With 3 events, his Dad, Brother and Sister will make sure he gets down the arena for every event at every rodeo.

Bailin is survived by his parents, Chet and Karina Hannon, a brother J.B. Cook, and sisters Lexi Cook and Hazynn Hannon, grandparents, Larry and Polly Hannon, Charles and Catherine Cook, Barbara Busa and Jerry Parker. Great grandparents, Jim and Velma Morales, Betty Busa, Sharon Hannon and Marge Stubbs. Uncles Charlie Cook, Clayton Cook, Devin Hannon and Cahil Cook. Aunts Breanne Mosley and Caitlin Hannon and numerous cousins, relatives and friends.

He is preceded in death by an uncle, Dustin Hannon, great grandfathers, John Stubbs, Larry E. Hannon, Billy “Pete” Burns, Sam Busa, Bill Cook and Brosig Busa. Great grandmother, Beulah Cook and a great uncle, Billy Ray Busa.
