Joe Scott Bailey, Sr. warmed the lives of Wright A. and Vera (Scott) Bailey on April 23, 1923.

Joe's marriage to Nellie Marie Larson on October 3, 1942, began a very full life. Joe was baptized and confirmed as an adult by Pastor Heltne at Calvary Lutheran Church near Bradley, SD. Joe and Nellie farmed in Clark County where Joe was active in politics. In 1959, Joe went to work for the South Dakota Highway Department as a Right-of-Way Negotiator, during which time the family moved to Rapid City, SD. Joe later went to work for the City of Rapid City; after working for the city for 40 years, Joe retired. He then served several terms on the City Council. Joe taught Sunday School and was on the church council at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Clark, SD, and also at Faith Lutheran in Rapid City.

Joe loved to fly and obtained his pilot's license in 1947. He owned his own plane and belonged to several flying clubs.

The warmth of Joe's fire went out when he went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, August 23, 2006, at the age of 83.

Joe will be sadly missed by his wife, Nellie, Apache Junction, AZ; five sons, Wright, Black Hawk, SD; Michael (Mary), Centennial, CO; Joe Jr. (Mary Jo), Sodus, NY; Keith (Anne), Centennial, CO; Dale, Aurora, CO; 25 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, a brother, Jack (Norma) Bailey, Clark, SD; a sister-in-law, Beverly Worsdale, Miami, FL.
