Paul Garold Bailey September 27, 1984 – May 8, 2013 Paul Garold Bailey passed away in his sleep on May 8, 2013, at his home in Grand Junction Colorado. Paul was born on September 27, 1984, in Phoenix, Arizona; he graduated from Palisade High School in 2003. He attended Colorado Mesa University, always trying to learn and better himself. He worked as a CNC Machinist at Lewis Engineering. Paul loved to spend time at Lake Powell diving off the red cliffs and hanging out on the boat and shoreline with his friends and family. A favorite pastime was making things that went "bang", much to the worry of dad and mom, and the Sheriff's Department! Paul had an unquenchable desire to learn and create. His greatest passion was expressing himself in song. He always inspired others to question all things and to seek out their own truths. His heart was full of love and compassion, always wanting the best for others, and always making us smile. He loved and respected many. Paul, the memories you gave to us will always be greatly cherished. From your antics as a little boy eating "basegetti" (what little spaghetti ever made it into your mouth), playing in the pool with your favorite horse; aka - your big brother Adam, and strumming on your first guitar at four years old - until all the strings broke. That little guitar led to your love of music and rockin' out in your band - Dualakoo! Paul is survived by his parents, Gary Bailey and Karie (Randy) Schwark of Grand Junction; his older brother, Adam Bailey of Grand Junction; step-brothers, Jordan and Daniel Schwark of Grand Junction; step-sister, DeAna Schwark of Grand Junction; grandparents, Ernie and Ida Bailey of Cedaredge; grandmother, Kathaleen Barnes of Thompson Falls, Montana; grandmother, Janet Schwark of Grand Junction; his nephew, Kayl Bailey; many aunts, uncles, and cousins, and far too many friends to list. A celebration of life service is scheduled for Tuesday, May 14, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. at Fellowship Church in Grand Junction, Colorado. Arrangements have been entrusted to Martin Mortuary
