Words cannot express the sorrow I feel over the loss of Johnny Bailey. He was a phenomenal person, athlete, father, brother and friend who touched the lives of so many people. He made the students of Jack Yates proud to be Lions because of his legacy in football. To the family, be strong and find comfort in each other as JB has found comfort in the Lord. Even in his passing, he has brought about a change and caused many people around the world to pray and seek God. He is still and will always be a blessing to everyone whose path he has crossed.

Nature

As a fond mother, when the day is o'er,
Leads by the hand her little child to bed,
Half willing, half reluctant to be led,
And leave his broken playthings on the floor,
Still gazing at them through the open door,
Nor wholly reassured and comforted
By promises of others in their stead,
Which, though more splendid, may not please him more;
So Nature deals with us, and takes away
Our playthings one by one, and by the hand
Leads us to rest so gently, that we go
Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay,
Being too full of sleep to understand
How far the unknown transcends the what we know.

All Praise and Glory be to God!!! Another Great Creation named Johnny L. Bailey touched the hearts and souls many people. We received him as a gift in many ways, most importantly as a challenge that made us better and to never give up. Johnny was a great friend who uplifted our community with his amazing talents. Propostion 48 couldn't stop what God had already scripted(NFL). Johnny is a true testament of a man that never backed down from anything and overcame all obstackles man placed before him. You will always live with us. Job well done!!! May God Bless and comfort you and your Family. RIP Brother.
August 27, 2010
My prayers are with the Bailey Family,Johnny is resting. I want to leave these words of comfort with you:

1 Thessalonians 4

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

Johnny is just asleep resting in Jesus arms waiting for his return. This is the opportunity for the ones that are lost and don't know Jesus. Make Jesus your choice today, so that you can be with JB again in HEAVEN.
August 27, 2010
To the family and loved ones of our beloved friend, Mr. Johnny Bailey: May God give you peace and strength to endure the loss of your great father, son, family member and friend. It's hard to understand why we lose our loved ones, but we must understand that God needs them more than we do.

May the memories of the time you spent with Johnny give you strength to endure and remember the good times for they will help ease the sorrow. Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy comes in the morning. May God continue to bless you, Nichole JY c/o 1989

To The Bailey Family:

Johnny Bailey was a role model for many of us. I watched him as a young lad, my brother graduating from Yates in '86. I am grateful for his legacy, his athleticism, his pride and spirit. Many of us are able to stick our chests out a tad bit more because of him and his accomplishments. As a fellow Yates Lion I take pride in knowing he is part of the legacy of such a great school and tradition. God Bless the Bailey Family and my prayers are with you during this time of bereavement. To My Fellow Yates Alumni, Be Strong - Lion Strong!

JB was not just a great atlete, but an even greater person. Always had a smile on his face, and wanted nothing but the best from his friends and teammates. Even though I only played with him for one year (I was a senior, he was a sophomore), I followed him throughout his playin days from high school, to college, to the pros. I can see in now along with Gary Williams (#21) and Coach Luther Booker (high school coach) calling out "12-counter option" lol. "Fuzzy" will be dearly missed......

Hey JB we were rivals on the field, but I knew you were a special person because when they mention your name at practice or in our locker room everybody paid attention. I never got the chance to tell you, but you brought the best out of me when we played Yates, and when we wasn't playing y'all I was checking the papers every week to see how many yard you rushed for, trying to make sure you didn't get too far in front of me, so you really were pushing me to compete with the best. You set a standard so high in HISD football I know GOD has a plan for you. My Condolences to the Bailey family & friends and his Jack Yates family. GOD had put that backfield with you and G-Dub back together again for his glory now.

August 23, 2010
I was the first female, black trainer at Texas A&I in 1986. I had the priviledge to meet JB as we called him. I witnessed the one and only record 95 yard punt return. He was a great football player and I was extremely proud of him for his entire career. To the Family...Look to the hills from whence cometh your help...Your help will come from the Lord.

August 23, 2010
This is one of the hardest things I'm having to do..sign my friend's guestbook regarding his passing. I met JB through my now ex husband, Heath Sherman. They were teammates and dear friends at A&I. I loved going back to Kingsville, hoping JB would be there also. Hanging out with him and Chico was simply the best! We all had some fun times sitting out in my yard laughing, talking, and partying. The last time we talked was at Heath's wife's funeral. Never knew we would be attending his funeral a few years later. JB, I love you and I will miss you! You are now home with your Father and I know you're smiling down from Heaven. My deepest condolences to the entire family. I will continue to uplift you in my prayers; that you all remain strong during this difficult time. God bless you all! Love Always!
August 23, 2010
It's so unreal! R.I.P. my bro! No more pain & suffering! Our Lord & Savior truly blessed us with you!You & G-Dub together again! Go to be with our other bro, Gary & we'll all be together again! Love you always & forever!
August 23, 2010
I have had the pleasure of knowing Johnny Bailey since James D. Ryan Jr. High School Cub days and then at Jack Yates High School. I knew then at Ryan that when Johnny got to Yates the year after me, he would take us to State and he did. The victory was won then and victory has been won again in 2010. The battle is over. Lots of Love and Respect! A C/O 85 JY Lion Forever Amen!
August 23, 2010
A legend that will forever live in our hearts. God needed you more,may you rest in peace. You will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
August 23, 2010
One of the happiest days of my life happened because of Johnny and the rest of his teammates on that bitterly cold day in Texas Stadium. Johnny made us Third Ward and Houston Proud.

I also hope you may find comfort in knowing that this great man has brought so much joy and excitement to the Chicago Bears, and their fans.

And every time he was on the field, the opposing teams anxiety level would skyrocket, wondering if they would be able to stop him.

And finally, that wonderful smile he would have on his face after a run, you could not help but smile too!

God Bless you, and thank you for sharing Johnny with us.

To the family and friends of Johnny Bailey. I watched him play football at Jack Yates HS and could see that he was a very special athlete. Now, in his passing, I see that he was much more.

I will cherish the fun times we had competing in basketball as well as football. To the family, I send my deepest sympathy and I encourage you to know that our brother suffers no longer and that he has touched so many lives in his journey. Family God Bless and Keep You.

Sending my sincerest condolences to the Bailey/Ford Families. We're all so blessed to have known such a wonderful person in Johnny. His spirit was always so warm and inviting. I'll always remember that about him. Football didn't make the man;"THE MAN, JOHNNY BAILEY, made football. He was a team player on the football field, but more important a team player on the field of life. Again, JB will be deeply missed.

I was with J.B. when he broke the NCAA rushing record in Oklahoma against Central State University. He had injured his knee the play before but kept on going after "The Play". I escorted J.B. to the locker room as we both wept of what he had just accomplished. I have never shared with anyone this story so I share it with friends and family. I had the opportunity to visit with J.B. a year and a half ago in Kingsville when John Randle and Ruben Cantu were inducted in the Javelina Hall of Fame, did I have a great time that night with Johnny? you better know it. I went to mass this morning and offered the soul of Johnny Bailey to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ in the celebration of the mass. We will all miss the wonderful memories of a gifted athlete. Jesus We Trust in You!
August 21, 2010
I sat in the press box a lot during Johnny Bailey's time at A&I, there was an air of expectation every time he touched the ball. He will be missed.

Baldwin, I remember the first time Fuzzy came to our house. He was sitting on the couch, very quiet and unassuming. He didn't have the "I'm Johnny Bailey" attitude...he was just "Fuzzy", Baldwin's brother. Haven't seen you or Fuzzy in a while but know that you and your family are in our prayers.
August 20, 2010
I met Bailey the summer of '86 when he came to Kingsville for camp but it wasn't until he hit the field that I realized he was a force to be reckoned with. I never enjoyed football until Johnny hit the field. Momma Ruby, your baby is resting in the arms of the Master. Cassandra, you were there until the end, may the Lord give you peace that can only come from Him. To Johnny's children: your father is a legend and legends never die.
