Mr. George Allen Bailey, son of the late Rev. Walter T. Bailey and Mary Selena Mills Bailey was born May 30, 1932 in Union County, North

George was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers: (twin) Rev. Henry Bailey (Bernell), David Bailey (Betty), James Walter Bailey (Thelma); two sisters: Thelma Moser and Margaret Funderburk (Leroy).

George began his work in the construction field in 1986 under the apprenticeship of Mr. Richard Hood, while mastering his craft he served as foreman until establishing a concrete finishing partnership for several years before branching out as the sole owner of Bailey’s Concrete Finishing. During his career, his craft and company employed several members of the local community and contributed to several of the Monroe and Charlotte metro area businesses and renovations projects until his retirement.

Zion Church where he served as The Trustee Board Chairman, Budget Committee member, Pastor’s Aide Board, Assistant Sunday School Superintendent, Choir Member and also served in several other areas of the church for many years. He was a faithful servant to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, a man of wisdom and who gave advice to the young and old at heart.
