Mr. Tyler Andrew Emory Bailey, 30, of Hartsville, was born March 3rd, 1992, and suddenly left to go on to pursue better opportunities on Sunday, July 24th, 2022. We are saddened by this decision, but the world has not been too fair to him; however, we are understanding because his trip there was a once in a lifetime opportunity. He tells us the visiting hours are unending, sun is always shining, food is impeccable, perfect company, and the music selection is always great. There are live shows featuring many of his favorite artists; and sometimes, he sings a tune with them. The fish are always biting and his boots are light and made of the finest materials. His truck runs well, his mansion is designed just for him, and there are no work days. Ma and Tyler spend the days out in the garden and when he goes fishing, they do not have to clean the fish. Grandaddy and he have caught up on lost time, as if they’ve never been apart. Everyday God opens the Heavens and allows him to look at his beloved Mama; whom he loved dearly. He also looks down on his precious daughter, Addy, the light of his life. His siblings on earth are missing him, but he left pieces of himself to: Amy, Steph, Bubba, Chelsea, and Coty. He greatly missed his Ma & Grandaddy, but he is now back with them. He smiles all day and everyone thinks he is so funny, just as we did. Tyler left behind many wonderful memories as well as unending love. It was normal for him to reach out to family and friends unexpectedly to express how much he loved them; and when he said it, he meant it. His light shined for all to see despite the pain he endured on earth. We surely miss his sweet smile and jovial personality.
Surviving are his parents, Mike & Artis Bailey of Hartsville; daughter, Addyline Artis Emory Bailey of Hartsville; siblings: Amy Bailey (Jon) of Florence, Stephanie Bailey of Florence, Chelsea Bailey (Trent) of Hartsville, Christopher (Candace) Bailey of Fayetteville, NC, and Coty Bailey of Hartsville; also surviving are many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Arthur & Louise Gunn and William & Carrie Bailey; and a niece, Elyce Vivienne Reno.
The service in celebration of his life will be conducted at 2:00 on Saturday afternoon, July 30th, 2022, from the Chapel of Norton Funeral Home with Reverend Scott Davis officiating and a committal following in Antioch Baptist Church Cemetery. The family will be receiving friends Friday evening, from 5-7 at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations or acts of kindness be shared with whomever your heart leads you to bless; or to your local humane society.
Norton Funeral Home & Crematory is honored to be serving the Bailey family.
