DAVID GRANT BAILEY
David Bailey, age 56, son of Diana and the late Fred Bailey, died peacefully, February 28, 2023, after a challenging battle with cancer. Dave grew up on Semple Avenue and attended West Kildonan Collegiate and Red River College (Systems Analyst 4). He was a dedicated MTS (Bell) employee with 37 years of service. Dave continued working at home throughout his illness, enjoying the connection with his colleagues and the support they provided him on his journey. Dave was the “go to guy” for any and all questions. In his unit at MTS, “all roads led to Dave.” You Rule.
Summer holidays were the highlight of his year. As a young lad, he attended a variety of summer camps. His love for fishing extended into adult years when he enjoyed time at Long Lake with his Dad Fred, uncle Leslie Carlson, and godfather Clive Derham. Hunting was another Father and Son event. David loved animals and will be missed by Boots, his feline companion.
Dave is also mourned by Diana’s partner, Edward Richliwski, aunts Shirley, Violet, uncles Floyd, George, Norman and Camille and numerous cousins.
Dave was predeceased by his uncles Jim and Leslie, and aunts Joyce and Eileen.
Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure.
Donations to Darcy’s Arc Animal Rescue would be appreciated.
Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, May 27, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street.
