On the morning of December 13, 2022, Bradley Bailey of Harrisville, PA passed away at the age of 57.
Brad was the son of James and Margaret Bailey. He graduated from Grove City Christian High School in 1983. While still in high school, Brad enlisted in the Army National Guard’s split training program and then served in the U.S. Army. Brad later worked as a machinist and found satisfaction in the precision and efficiency of that work.
Brad’s love for his community and neighbors was evident in the way that he quietly sought to meet the needs of those around him. Brad loved the outdoors, appreciated the beauty of natural surroundings, and was always happiest when gathering with friends and family around a campfire.
Brad is survived by his parents, James and Margaret Bailey, his siblings Marsha (Stephen) Johnson, Patty Bailey, Jeannie (Chad) Sutton, Andrew (Jamie) Bailey, and his nieces and nephews who he cared for deeply, Olivia (Daniel) Burgher, Nathan Johnson, Jackie Sutton, Sara Sutton and D.J. Sutton.
A time of remembrance was held from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 17, 2022 at the Jamison-McKinley funeral home. Friends and family were welcomed to come and share memories of Brad.
We take comfort in this: “The ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” ~ Isaiah 35:10.
