Richard had 19 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren, who he loved very much. After graduating from DeRidder High School, Richard began his career in the plumbing and A/C field, but quickly pursued a career as a fireman where he spent his time fighting fires and saving lives. He loved every minute of it. He then became a Chief Arson Investigator for Harris County for several years after that. Eventually, Richard turned in his fire badge to become a police officer for more than 20 years. He served as a Constable for Trinity County for 10 years. He then served the remainder of his career with the Polk County Sheriff’s and San Jacinto County Sheriff’s offices, from which he retired as a Lieutenant in 2016. Richard was a God fearing man and remained active in church throughout his life. He loved the outdoors and was an avid fisherman, even building his home on the lake with his own hands. He enjoyed deer hunting, but more than that he loved watching the deer from his back door as they fed at the feeder he had placed in the yard. Richard loved his family and enjoyed get-togethers and reunions, especially if it meant he could showcase his cooking skills. His family meant the world to him. He will be deeply missed by all. Pallbearers: Quinton Hollis, Mark Shirley, Blake Hollis, Kaden Hollis, Eric Tieskotter, and John Pelzel Jr. To plant Memorial Trees in memory of Richard Louis Bailey, please click here to visit our Sympathy Store.
