2 Condolences to Randy Ray Bailey

  1. Phillip & Christina Updike & Paul Beck says:

    We are so sorry to hear of Randy’s passing. We knew him during the many years he lived in assisted living at Loyalton, then next called Emeritus, and now Brookdale of Harrisonburg. He was a kind and generous man and he always looked out for all the other residents, which included my father. He always enjoyed talking about local sports, especially JMU football and basketball, and the Washington Redskins. Our sympathy goes out to his family, who we know will miss him very much.
    Most sincerely,
    Phil, Tina and Paul

  2. I am very deeply sorry to hear of Randy’s passing. He was well thought of and was a good friend. We spent many hours discussing hunting and fishing together and I enjoyed his company very much. He was a great admirer of my art, but when we would talk, I found out that we had a great deal in common. He will be sorely missed. I hoist a glass to you my friend.
