Bruce Edward Bailey, 73, passed away unexpectedly on December 29, 2020 in Show Low, Arizona. He was born May 18, 1947, in Utica, NY, to Stanley and Roberta (Ellis) Bailey.
Bruce loved adventuring and traveling all over the world. He lived in Florida, Alaska, New Zealand, and Australia before settling and retiring in Arizona. He was known as a true “Mountain Man” to many. He collected unique vehicles in his earlier years and embraced a simple lifestyle.
Bruce is preceded in death by his father, Stanley Bailey, mother, Roberta (Ellis) Bailey, and his brother n’ law, James (Jim) Roberts.
He is survived by his sister, Suzanne (Bailey) Roberts, nieces Diane (Roberts) Rogowski (John), and Wendy (Roberts) Johnson, and nephew David Roberts (Cherry), and a family full of cousins, and many friends.
A memorial service will take place sometime over the summer at the family cemetery.
