T/Sgt Perry Bailey, Jr., 36, was born on August 30, 1982 in Fort Worth, Texas, to the union of late Perry Bailey, Sr., and Mammie Sistrunk. Perry was one of five siblings. He graduated from Kemp High School in Kemp, Texas in 2002. At an early age, he accepted Christ as his personal Savior. He leaves as his legacy and blessed to have four children named Perry Bailey III, Andre Bailey, Ruben Quiroz and Taylor Bailey.

T/Sgt Bailey loved his children and always enjoyed teaching them about life, playing football, basketball and running track with them. The children always looked forward to going to the movies and all types of activities with their father. T/Sgt Bailey was a “poor sport” while playing the videos games with his brothers and children. Whenever he was losing the game, he would unplug the television or just tell them to pause the game so that the entire game would have to be restarted over.

T/Sgt Bailey entered the United States Air Force in 2003 and served his country with honor and faithfulness as a Paramedic for the U.S. Air Force for 15 years. From May 2005 to August 2014, he was stationed at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia. He was also assigned to Anderson Air Force Base, Guam from August 2014 to September 2017 and he was stationed at Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana, from September 2017 to the present. T/Sgt Bailey climbed through the military ranks to obtain the grade of Technical Sergeant and was highly respected as a Paramedic Non-Commissioned Officer in charge of medical education and training. He always had a passion for teaching.

T/Sgt Bailey was kind and always had time to answer a question or solve a problem. He was an amazing leader and wonderful mentor to the younger medics at Barksdale Air Force Base. T/Sgt Bailey was well loved not only by Air Force personnel, local Fire and Police Departments in the Shreveport and Bossier City areas, he was loved by his family and friends. He loved to tell jokes to cheer people up and his laughter was contagious.

Perry loved to run and participated in several marathons. His marathons consisted of the 13.1 Half Mile marathon in Shreveport, Louisiana called “The Heroes Marathon”, the 26.2 miles marathon called “The Chevron Marathon” in Houston, Texas, and the Little Rock Marathon in Arkansas which consisted of 13.1 miles. T/Sgt Perry was awarded many medals for these marathons.

T/Sgt Bailey leaves to cherish his memory: Mother Mammie Sistrunk, Brothers Lowell Dansby, Jr., Jacarri Culberson, Terrence Sistrunk (Meghan), Sister Mauricia Sistrunk, nephews Elijah Bradford and Noah James, niece Darnique Baldwin and a host of cherished aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Perry Bailey, Sr., his maternal grandmother, Ella King, paternal grandmother, Patsy Standmire and paternal grandfather, Eli Standmire.

A Homecoming Ceremony is scheduled for July 18, 2019 at Sunset Memorial Park and Funeral Home Chapel and burial at Fort Sam Houston Army Base in San Antonio, Texas. Minister Sam Riley will officiate the ceremony.

TSgt Bailey was a sweet and funny young man. He would always make time to say hello and chat with me when I dropped in for lunch with my husband next door. We had invited him for Easter dinner with us and he told me he couldn’t make it due to a GI illness, when I offered him some food and advice about probiotics after, he loved it and would say with a big grin, “I’m taking the probiotics, I’m feeling so good now”. The way he would say that would make everyone laugh out loud. He had great comedic timing, I was actually just a nobody in the office, not a coworker or a patient, but Perry always took time to talk, a random act of kindness.
Another fun memory of him was at a retirement party when my husband got up from the table and he kept asking me, “is he wearing Nike, where did he get that jacket? I love Nike, now I want a jacket like that....” it made me laugh so hard because he would say it every time my husband wasn’t aware. Super comedic timing and the ability to read people.
His loss and life has touched so many and will continue to. One day in heaven we will meet and laugh again. My husband and I think of and pray for his children and family, especially Mom.

I met Perry this summer during EMT instructor course. During those 2 weeks, he was the one who kept us laughing, entertained, and focused all at the same time. He was our class leader and his passion for teaching and helping people
never went unnoticed. He pushed me to go on a few runs together and he was the first person I went to when I was afraid to teach my lesson. Over the past week or so, I've read many things about his kindness and willingness to be there for people and I can testify to this. It's with a heavy heart that I say goodbye. We will miss you Perry!

My deepest condolences to your family Bailey. When I heard, my heart grew heavy. I couldn’t believe that you were no longer with us. I still remember when you said, “Kungy!! That’s what I’m going to call you cause I will never learn to say your name”. It made me laugh at the sound coming out of your mouth but the joy you had saying it was unmatched. You were always supportive and loved to take bets. I still owe you lunch! I’m sure you’ll cash in one day. Rest easy Friend until our paths cross again.

I had the honor of working with T/Sgt Bailey when he was stationed at Langley AFB. He was a pleasure to work with and always had a joke to tell to bring a smile to your face. We bonded over our shared live of The Georgia Bulldogs. Rest In Peace my friend, you will be missed.

I had the pleasure of attending noncommissioned officer school with TSgt Bailey, he seemed quiet at first but once he started talking about a subject he was passionate, it was like he was another person. Always smiling and not afraid to speak his mind when the situation called for it. Condolences to TSgt Bailey’s family. The United States Air Force lost a great person.
