Too many good memories growing up with Uncle Chuck. Cross-country skiing at Aman Park. Visiting the Detroit Renaissance Center and Boblo Island. Playing the Gamemaster during Dungeons & Dragons , so the boys wouldn't cheat. Tracking down Trivial Pursuit so that we could play teams, at the kitchen table. Camping at 'Stormy's Hideaway' cabin in Luther. 'flicking' your ear, as his affectionate way of teasing. Dori and I learning to drive, and then getting our licenses. YOU WILL BE MISSED ♥

My memories of Chuck are too numerous to mention. A lot of fun times. Chuck was not only my brother-in-law but my boss at Burger King...that always went over big when he started talking about the "baileys" because he knew he could get a rise out of me. After marriage we played games many a Friday . After chuck took and interest in bow hunting, we initiated him living in close quarters with all of the crazy Baileys. Chuck was our camp cook and was a good sport with all the jokes. I will never forget when uncle warren had a loaded pistol hanging on a gun rack in office on Ivanrest. Chuck assumed it was unloaded like the rest of us and preceded to remove it when "bang!!!!" I can still here him yell "TANNER!!!" Warren had been sitting at the desk next to chuck. Always enjoyed our discussions over US History. You will be missed by many brother-in-law. xo

Bob and I knew Chuck and Jan for over 60 years when we all worked at Blodgett Hospital and wound up being neighbors when we discovered we lived across the street from each other! I admired Chuck’s woodworking skills and was gifted with some of his works which were beautiful and greatly appreciated. My condolences to the whole family for their loss.

My Uncle Chuck, I can still see the sign on the back of his bicycle "Runs on Cholesterol " back then I had no idea what Cholesterol even was. He was my game master. He peaked my interest in photography . A great mentor !
He has and will always be a part of my life and memories.

I am a member of the out-laws in the Bailey family. Chuck was a voracious reader and the first one in the family to have a computer. Great woot woodcarver and game player. I have pieces that chuck carved everywhere in my house. I think of him every time I see his creations. Will miss you fellow out-law
