Lloyd Clinton Bailey, age 82, was given rest on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, in Ballad Hospice House after a lengthy illness. Clinton served his country and its people in the U.S. Army as well as his community as a member of the Washington County Volunteer Fire Dept.
He not only provided for his family, but also friends and strangers alike. If he saw a need he did his best to fill that need. Clinton enjoyed his life and lived it to the fullest, and his passing will leave a great void in our community.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Willie and Sam Bailey; four sisters, two brothers; and one great-grandson, Baby Matthew.
Survivors include his childhood sweetheart and wife of 59 years, Emily Ann Bailey; daughters, Susan Lewis and Sharon Reynolds and husband Chris; grandchildren, Matthew Lewis and wife April, Katrina Thomas and husband Adam, Maggie Lewis and husband Casey Daughtery, and Elaina Reynolds; great-grandchildren, Bryson Carter and Bella Lewis; and several step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Graveside services will be held at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, December 7, 2019, in Wyndale United Methodist Church Cemetery with Pastor David Gibson officiating.
