James Ferrell Bailey, Jr. went to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, August 2nd, 2019. He was 58 years old and was born in San Angelo, Texas. He married his best friend and soulmate Wanda Gilbert Bailey on June 10th, 1988. James lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures by spending every moment of every day with his wife, family, and friends. James was a simple man and lived a simple life and would not have wanted it any other way. He was the most unselfish, caring, sweet man anyone has ever met. James always had a smile on his face and tons of love in his heart. He never met a stranger and always had time to talk to anyone. James was an awesome child of God and had child-like faith. The family is at peace knowing how excited he was when he walked through the gates of heaven barefoot just like Jesus.
