Rodger Lloyd Bailey, Sr.

Rodger Lloyd Bailey, Sr., 64, of 1301 Worsham Mill Road, Ruffin, went home to be with The Lord on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 at the Hospice Home of Rockingham County surrounded by his loving children.

His Mustang was his pride and joy! Along with his parents, he is also preceded in death by his beloved grandmother, Maggie B. Finney.

I am saddened to hear of your Dads passing. Rodger was one of the good guys and I considered him a friend. He always made time to listen to my stories and time to share his own. Your Dad always bragged on you children and how accomplished each of you had become - extremely proud! Rodger will be greatly missed.
