TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES UPON THE PASSING OF GARY WAYNE BAILEY OF SUMMERVILLE, TO CELEBRATE HIS LIFE, AND TO EXTEND THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HIS FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives were deeply saddened by the passing of Gary Wayne Bailey of Summerville on December 4, 2020, at the age of sixty-nine; and
Whereas, born in Washington, D.C., on December 31, 1950, Gary Bailey was the son of Wayne and Mary Magdeline Bailey; and
Whereas, the owner of Gary Bailey Construction Company, he was also a member of Summerville Masonic Lodge #234, past president of the Summerville Exchange Club, and a member of the Dorchester Boat Club Board of Directors; and
Whereas, Gary loved spending time with his grandchildren and attending all of their Little League games. He loved the Sunday family dinners and morning breakfasts at the Waffle House on Trolley Road. Further, he enjoyed traveling and was a fan of Clemson and Summerville football, serving as the head of the Chain Crew for the Summerville football team for nearly fifty years; and
Whereas, a man of faith, Gary served his God as a member of Bethany United Methodist Church. He loved the Friendship Circle Sunday School Class and enjoyed mission trips with the church; and
Whereas, Gary was a pillar of the Summerville community for decades. The countless relationships he fostered through the years are a testament to his character and integrity. He will be honored and remembered, and his legacy will live on; and
Whereas, Gary Bailey leaves to cherish his memory his wife, Jennifer Cobun Bailey; his sons, Kevin Wayne Bailey and Carey Patrick Bailey (Lauren); his daughter, Christie Marie Bailey; his stepdaughter, Seana Powers; his brother, David Bailey; and his seven grandchildren, Cullen Bailey, Hayden O'Rear, Bryce O'Rear, Kirkland Bailey, Garrett Cherin, Johnston Bailey, and Caleb Bailey. He was predeceased by his parents; his stepmother, Dorothy James Bailey; his sister, Janice Bailey; and his brother, Dennis Bailey. He will be greatly missed. Now, therefore,
