Baylor Briggs


Baylor Wesley Briggs, infant son of Brittany Colvin Briggs and Travis Briggs, went to heaven on Monday, November 8, 2021.  He was born on July 9, 2021, in Beaumont.

Baylor was God’s blessing to the Briggs and Colvin families. He was prayed for, loved and cherished. Many did not have the opportunity to meet him, but he was a simple, happy baby who never cried unless he was hungry. Baylor could bring life to a room with the love and happiness that surrounded him. His sweet smile, round cheeks and dimples would melt any heart that held his sweet soul. His love for his mother, dad, and big sister Brynlee showed through in his eyes.

God has a plan and purpose for all of us. Baylor was God’s perfect son and too perfect for this world. He is in heaven now, surrounded by many loved ones holding him dear. It is too easy to be angry at God in times like these, but it is now that we should let God into our hearts. We would have taught Baylor many things in life, but the most important would be “Let God lead, live spiritually, love strongly, listen kindly and act Godly”. Relinquish your pain and open your hearts and let Baylor teach us these things from his perfect place in heaven. Baylor lives on within each of us and instills hope that we can each live our lives looking upward to God, seeking strength in God’s love. Until we meet again my boy.

Survivors include his parents; sister, Brynlee Ava Briggs; grandparents, Carol and Gene Colvin of Silsbee and Evelyn and Pat Briggs of Fannett; great-grandparents, Martha Colvin of Silsbee and Annie Comiskey of Port Neches; aunts and uncles, Kailey Balla and her husband, Cody and Dylan Colvin, all of Silsbee; Tyler Briggs and his wife, Whitney, of Fannett; and Grant Briggs of Cumming, Georgia; and numerous cousins and other family members.
