Billy Cain Bailey was born to Beryl and Sophia Bailey in Tupelo, Mississippi on February 18, 1949. He was the first of three children, second was his sister Jackie and David Holman, and last was Carl Bailey his brother. He met our mother in Utah while he was in the Army, Lee Ann Swenson. They married and had six children, Bud and Terri Bailey, Jack and Allison Bailey, Gray and Beckie Bailey, Micha and Pam Bailey, Aaron Bailey, and Tiffany Norwood. He lived long enough to see 18 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. The grand children are Harrison Bailey, Swenson and Karla Bailey, they have the great-grandson William Bailey, Madison Bailey, Grayson Norwood, Sophie Bailey, Billy Bailey, Hazel Bailey, Kyra Norwood, Oliva Bailey, Scarlet Bailey, Van Bailey, Skyler Bailey, Ellie Bailey, Remington Bailey, Patrick Bailey, Brigham Bailey, Micha ''Baby Daddy'' Bailey, and Wyatt Bailey. Our father worked for Lowes as a salesman in the late 70's. He then got a job at Kinko's until the mid 90's when he opened his own printing business, Copy Stop. A man has to use his talents and our dad knew how to reproduce. We love you, until we meet again…
We are so sorry we were out of town and unable to attend the service for Bill but truly appreciate being able to view if via Zoom. He will be sorely missed by us and others in the LR AR Stake, and by the many friends he made over the years. I am grateful that we were able to attend your temple sealing and grateful for the knowledge of the gospel he so faithfully taught to his family. God Bless you all. Carol & Jim Brown
