Arthur Dale Bailey

"The light that burns twice as bright, burns half as long"

Arthur "Dale" Bailey , III
His light burned very, very brightly.

Born Into This Realm ~ October 8, 1975

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.

I would like to offer my condolences for your loss. How comforting it is to know that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, will soon eliminate all grief and provide permanent consolation when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear  Christ’s voice and come out”! (John 5:28, 29) God promises that “he will do away with death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isa. 25:8) Then, instead of having to “weep with those who weep,” all earth’s inhabitants will “rejoice with those who rejoice.”​—Rom. 12:15.

I give my sincere condolences to the families and friends. The best description of Jehovah God is that he is love. It talks of this at 2 Corinthians 13:11 where it says, "Finally, brothers, continue to rejoice, to be readjusted, to be comforted, to think in agreement, to live peaceably, and the God of love and of peace will be with you." This love is the reason why we can be confident that Jehovah will remember those in the memorial tombs in the near future and we will be reunited with our loved ones. Please take comfort in that knowledge.
