Bailey, William Edwin went home to be with his Lord on April 13, 2014 after a brief illness at the age of 103 years old. Survivors include two daughters, Marianne B. Harvell and Martha Sue B McCorkle (Frank); three grandchildren, Martha Aman (Doug), Michael Harvell (Erin), and Laura Susan (Walla) Harvell and fiancé Jay Sullivan; three great-grandchildren, Mallory Aman Wilson (Trent), Doug Aman (Anne), and Frank Aman (Laura); six great great-grandchildren.
Mr. Bailey had a 50 year career with the railroad working his way up to the position of Train Master, which he held at the time of retirement. The greatest joy in his life was doing the Lords work. He was a Sunday school teacher for the Men's Bible Sunday School Class for 35 Years. Special thanks to Amedysis Hospice and his primary caregiver, Stephanie Harper, who took care of him until his time of death.
Memorial Services will be held at First United Methodist Church at 2:30pm, on Tuesday April 15, 2014 with Dr. Lawson Bryan officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to the services.
