An avid outdoorsman, Bailey was doing what he loved surrounded by nature and close friends. Throughout Bailey’s life and undoubtedly in the steps in the journey he is now on, he will bring everyone around him laughter, passion, strength and love. He was a gentle giant, standing tall above those around him and yet was the most tender among us.
