Thomas was born in Danville, VA and was the son of the late Robert and Geraldine Bailey.

Along with his parents he was also preceded in death by his brothers Robert “Doc” Bailey, Carlton Bailey, and Wayne Bailey; sisters Ruby Barber and Gaynell Corum.

Thomas is survived by his wife Brenda East Bailey; daughters Lisa Bailey Major and husband Jeff and Linda Bailey Marks and husband Vincent; grandchildren Bailey, Kenzie, and Bryan; sisters Patricia White and husband Carson and Mildred Moorefield; brother Fred Bailey; brothers-in-law Ronnie East and wife Carol, and Allen East; sisters-in-law Sandra East, Wanda Yeatts and Cynthia Tate and husband George; nieces, nephews and a large extended family.
