Bob we first met in 1969 in Cheneyville La. at Farmers Dusting Co. and we always seem to have things to talk about every time we saw each other at meetings and convention for years after that. We will miss you in this industry and this life.

Bob Bailey was one of the greatest story tellers for ag-aviation, giving great emphasis with his physical expressions. In his lifetime, he saw many changes in ag-aviation and was a part of most of them. Bobbye, he'll be greatly missed. -Bill Lavender
