James D. Bailey, 62, of Port Orange, passed away on April 4, 2019. He was a member of CrossRoads Church in Daytona Beach.  Jim was an Operations Manager for a trucking company in Georgia, before moving to Florida.
He always helped people and considered everyone he met a friend. Bringing people together for fish frys, cook outs  and having fun brought him great joy. Jim was a handyman that could fix anything. He was a great fisherman.  He didn’t go fishing, he went catching!
He dearly loves his family and friends and wants them all to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Jim is a loving husband, dad & papa. He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife of 39 years, Scarlett Gay Bailey, sons Timothy James (Jennifer) Bailey of Alexandria, VA and Robert Lee (Brittany) Bailey of Jenkinsburg, GA, brothers, Thomas Bailey of Jackson, GA and Paul Bailey of Morrow, GA and his three beloved granddaughters, Kara, Sophia and Chloe.

    Jim was a good man and a funny man enjoyed life and people. He was always a great Fisherman but changed his life a few years ago and he leaves us as what would be called a " FISHER " of men. Rest peacefully Big Jim
