Bradley Scott Bailey

October 7, 1959 ~ April 12, 2022 (age 62)


BRADLEY S. BAILEY During the late evening hours of Tuesday, April 12th, 2022, lifelong Canton resident Bradley Scott Bailey passed away peacefully at Troy Hospital following a courageous battle with cancer. He was 62 years of age. Born in Blossburg on October 7th, 1959, he was the son of Harold and Beatrice (McCracken) Bailey. Brad graduated from Canton High School in 1977 and from the Pennsylvania College Technology in 1979 with a degree in Tool and Die. He was a life long member of the Canton Church of Christ(Disciples). He had a penchant for all things mechanical and was employed as a maintenance engineer and troubleshooter at First Quality, McElhatten, Pennsylvania for many years. In his free time he enjoyed all manner of outdoors activities such as hunting, fishing and riding his motorcycle. He had a broad smile, a congenial nature, and was always quick with a joke. He always had a kind word for everyone, and was never one to criticize or pass judgment.  Brad lived by the code which says not to judge others until you have walked in their shoes. But most of all Brad's life was centered around his children and grandchildren. They were who he lived for. Brad is survived by his children, Tricia Sexton of Georgia, Lucas (Madeline) Bailey of Troy, PA, and Paige Bailey of Williamsport, PA; grandchildren, Carter, Cooper, Conner, Lincoln, Everett and Hallie (who is due in May); siblings Betty Fitzwater and Brenda (John) Mott; nephews, Reeve, Jason, Nicholas, Adam and Kyle, and by special canine Sam. Brad was preceded in death by his father, Harold S. Bailey, mother, Beatrice M. Bailey, brother, Robert H. Bailey, son-in-law, Blake Sexton and brother-in-law, K. LaRue Fitzwater. Visitation will be 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 19, 2022, at Morse & Kleese Funeral Home, 94 N. Center St., Canton, PA, with service to follow at 11:00 a.m. Interment will be private. The family suggests contributions in Brad's memory may be made to the American Cancer Society, 1948 E. 3rd St., Williamsport, PA 17701. (
