Obituary for Ricky Gene Bailey

Ricky Gene  Bailey
Bostic, NC
Ricky Gene Bailey, “Ric” age 64 passed away Friday November 2, 2018 at Hospice of the Carolina Foothills in Forest City, NC.

Ric’s family is honored and thankful to have had him for his short 64 years. We all love him dearly. Some of his most precious moments were spent with brothers, Ed and Jeff and little Hot Rod. He was blessed with a multitude of friends whom he loved and they loved him in return.
Ric was especially blessed to have Lisa Owens as the love of his life and he was the love of hers.
He was an outdoorsman who loved to fish, camp and golf. He loved to cook for anyone that would let him, always producing delicious results.
