Ronald was predeceased by his parents, Ransom Bailey and Aileen Lamm, as well as his brothers, Jerry Bailey and Robert Bailey. He is survived by his son, Ronald Bailey, Jr. and his wife Dawn of Sims, NC. Ronald also leaves behind his brother, Gary Bailey, and his sisters, Shirley Bunn, Bonnie Bissette, and Mary High, all of Bailey, NC.

His legacy continues through his grandsons, Jordan Bailey and his wife Megan of Manchester, England, and his granddaughters, Kristen Lewis and her husband Taylor of Kenly, NC, and Kalyn Bailey and Zach of Wilson, NC. His great-grandson, Greyson "Bug" Lewis of Kenly, NC, will remember his great-grandfather's friendly demeanor and handy skills.

Ronald spent his entire life working in heavy equipment, demonstrating a strong work ethic and a dedication to his craft. For over twenty years, he was a trusted truck driver for Bunn's Trucking, where his reliability and commitment were highly valued. His colleagues and friends will remember him as a reliable and hardworking individual who was always ready to lend a helping hand.

A God-fearing man, Ronald's faith was an integral part of his life. He was known for his strong moral compass and his unwavering commitment to his beliefs.
