William Dunning "Bill" Bailey

October 30, 1948 — July 12, 2022

Our amazing "Bill Bailey" went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, July 12, 2022.  He died peacefully at home with his loving family surrounding him.

He is survived by his wife, Patricia Lynne Bailey and his children, Michael Gerald Bailey (Judy), Melissa Joy Bailey-Mulka (Paul) and was preceded in death by daughter, Michelle Jacqueline Bailey-Moga (Michael).  He leaves behind 6 grandchildren, John Michael Bailey, Keely Marie Bailey-Rodriguez, Rena Michelle Bailey, Liam Joseph
Bailey and Nicole Michelle Mulka and Patrick Mark Mulka.  He also leaves behind his 3 great grandchildren, Kaleb Ignacio Rodriguez, Novalee Marie Rodriguez and Weston Dunning Mulka.

Bill worked as a third generation Pipefitter at Pipefitters Local Union #597 since 1970.  He retired and moved to Tennessee in 2011.
He enjoyed doing volunteer work and, when moving to Tennessee from Naperville, IL, volunteered at Family Resource Center, Backpack Programs and the Food Bank.  He was a social man and will always be remembered for his sense of humor.
