Bailey was an avid hunter and fisherman and also enjoyed trapshooting. He was known for his infectious smile, kind blue eyes, and his ability to make others laugh.
Bailey accepted Jesus Christ as his Personal Savior at a young age. He always loved Jesus and knew Jesus loved him. Bailey was always reaching out to the hurting. He once asked his mother to write down a verse to keep in his wallet at all times: "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

Upon his passing, his loved ones have been amazed to learn how many lives Bailey touched.
