August 13, 1930 – December 3, 2011
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Arthur Bailey on December 3, 2011. Art was predeceased by his wife of 48 years, Isabelle Clarke. He is survived by his sons Richard (Judy) and Douglas (Cathy) and step-son Peter (Loretta) Schwarzhoff. A service in his memory will be held at Ironwood Place at 2pm on December 21st. Born in East Angus, Quebec to a pulp and paper family, Art headed west on his father’s advice, first to New Westminster where he boarded with his sister Mabel, then to Ocean Falls which he said was no place for a single man, and finally to Campbell River where he met Isabelle. Art was the supervisor of the Stock Preparation department at Elk falls until his retirement in 1990. In retirement Art could usually be found in his workshop or in his garden bragging about his tomatoes. He will be sadly missed.
