He was fun to be around, very spontaneous and was always full of jokes. He was the “light” of the crowd and never met a stranger. He always kept a smile on his face and never complained about anything. He accepted Christ as his Savior and became a member of Cherry Street Church of God. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Eddie and Mary Emma Cade; parents, William and Annie Mae Bailey; and father-in-law, William Tillery, Jr. He leaves to cherish his memory his wife, Juanita Bailey; mother-in-law, Myrtle Louise Tillery; his daughter, Kristie (Fred) Blevins [of Knoxville]; stepchildren: Mark Latham [Norcross, GA] and Kantisha (Keith) Morris [Murfreesboro, TN]; brother, Alvin (LeRoyce) Bailey; sisters: Verne Bailey [Chattanooga, TN], Yolanda Bailey, Sandra (Jerry) Waterson [Knoxville, TN] and Shirley Bailey [Orange, NJ]; grandchildren: Randall Tillery, Keith Morris, Jr., Frenando Blevins, Cassidy Morris, Kristen Blevins and Jairus Blevins; and a host of cherished family to include uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and friends whom he loved dearly; extended families to include the Tillery’s. The family will receive friends on Friday, September 13, 2019 from 12 PM to 1 PM at Cherry Street Church of God, 729 S.
