Jerry Bailey

January 16, 1947 — August 9, 2022


On August 9, 2022, Jerry Bailey followed God's plan for him. He was surrounded by family and friends to lead him on his next journey. 


Jerry was born in Big Fork, Minnesota. He spent his younger years helping his dad on the family farm, milking cows daily and haying. Jerry was proud of the fact that he drove a tractor at the age of 4. This is how he learned his hard work ethic, which he carried throughout his life. 


Jerry and his dad were the top team to beat when competing in horse shows. He then advanced to compete in the rodeo arena as a bronc rider, bareback rider, and most respected as a bull rider.


He was also very proud of being a truck driver. He often reminded everyone that he had a million miles of accident-free driving. 


After retirement, Jerry fulfilled his dream of owning an RV and traveling the West with Janet and any family or friends who wanted to come along! His love of history was enjoyed by all who came with us. 


He is survived by his patient, loving, and understanding wife of 38 years, Janet. Sons Kyle (Ashley) and Justin (Alana); daughter Samantha (Kurt) Meyer, with two very special grandsons, Deacon, and Emmett Bailey. Along with his best furry friends, Copper, and Shadow Bailey. Brothers: Rick (Diane), Mike, and Dwayne, Sisters: Nancy and Jill (Alan). Numerous in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends from all over. Also, special cousin David & Peggy Cloniger who gave Jerry the experience of Alaska! 


Preceded in death by parents Jack and Kate, brother Randy, and sisters: Judy, Merry, and Sheila. Brother-in-laws: Mike Gladhill, John Young, and Ron Lahti. Beloved best friend Chipper, the "wonder dog."
