Bruce Bailey, age 72, of North Little Rock, Arkansas passed away unexpectedly on September 5th. Bruce shared two children, Kristopher, Stephanie, and four grandchildren, Paige, Ezra, Juliette and Caroline with his wife of 28 years, Pam, who remained close until the end of his life.
He is also survived by his brothers Mark and Kevin, numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, and countless friends. He is preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Patricia Bailey and his brother, Dennis.
Bruce was born in Cleveland, Ohio and lived all over the country while growing up in a military family, and also served in the Air Force himself. He raised his family and lived in Austin TX for many years. He enjoyed music and concerts and was a huge Jimmy Buffet fan. He loved hiking, snow skiing and spending time with family at the lake. He had recently moved closer to his daughter and grandchildren and made many precious memories while there. His laughter, warm hugs and great stories will be greatly missed.
Our family is grateful he passed knowing how much he was loved by us all. A Celebration of life will be held at the David Simpson Hospice House in Cleveland, Ohio on October 21 st .
In lieu of flowers, the family wishes memorial contributions be made to the Honor Flight organization. Bruce was a recipient of a veterans trip to D.C. through Honor Flight and it was very meaningful to him.
