I'm sorry to hear this. I always enjoyed listening to his stories.He made ag aviation what it is today.He will be missed.
Bob "The Godfather" Bailey is a true legend, an end of an era in ag-aviation. He was an idol and inspiration to many. Bob RIP my friend, you will be greatly missed.
Bob will always live on in my memories of our time together in aviation. Bobbie,we will keep you in our prayers.
It was such a pleasure to see Bob drive up at the airport in Clarksdale where I grew up. The stories between Sid Turner, my father and Bob were great. So long old friend, I know your final flight west will be a good trip!
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
The members of the Jackson Hangar Quiet Birdmen will certainly miss Bob.
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
