Virginian Review publisher Horton Beirne dies at 67

Like his grandfather and father before him, Horton Beirne’s final days were spent publishing newspapers in Alleghany County.

The third-generation publisher of the Virginian Review died Saturday night at the age of 67 due to complications from pulmonary disease.“Most people have said, ‘We’re going to miss him because he did so much for this community,’ ” said Beirne’s wife, Mary Anne Beirne.
