"The light that burns twice as bright, burns half as long"
Arthur "Dale" Bailey , III
His light burned very, very brightly.

Ascended Eternally Into All of Hearts
December 4, 2017
Dale was a man of candor, strength, kindness and unrivaled loyalty. He was a masterful mechanic and loved turning wrenches. His love for cars could only be rivaled by his passion for creating works of art. A tattoo machine as his brush, some lucky individuals as his canvas.
Dale would give you the shirt off his back or a kick in the ass, whichever you needed more. He happily obliged. To be in Dale's good company, one felt at ease, safe, cared for and cared about. Those blessed enough to Dale on a deeper level experienced an apparelled kinship - his family an unwavering love. (Yes, even Star Wars). Yet for all of Dale's passions all paled in comparison to his love of his mother.
Still in the realm to carry on Dale's memory are his mother Carla King; father Tony Bailey; brothers Michael of Orlando and Raymond of Illinois; 5 nieces and 5 nephews.
The family will be receiving friends at Dobbs Funeral Home from 6:00 until 8:00 pm. The funeral service will begin at 7:00 pm.
