7/7/1950 ~ 11/22/222
Warren Earl Bailey returned to his heavenly home on November 22nd, 2022, at the age of 72, after a long and valiant battle with cancer.
Warren was born in Mount Pleasant, Utah, on July 7th, 1950, to Ernest Allgood and Hazel Aagard Bailey. He was the youngest of 6 children.
He grew up in Fountain Green, Utah. He spent his youth working on the farm with his brothers, and enjoyed spending time with friends, hunting, and his mother’s good cooking.
Warren graduated from North Sanpete High School in 1968. He spent the following years, 1969-1971, serving for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints in the Northern States mission. Upon his return home, Warren courted and married his high school sweetheart, Lorraine Nielsen. They were sealed on January 22nd, 1972, in the Manti, Utah temple. They shared nearly 51 years of an exemplary marriage, and together raised 6 sons. Their posterity has now extended to 25 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren.
Warren spent his career at Moroni Feed Company. He retired in 2006, after 34 years of dedicated service. He maintained a farm on the side during those years, and spent his retirement cultivating that land, never an idle moment.
Warren was a pillar in his family, and community. He served as bishop of the Fountain Green 2nd ward, and also deeply treasured his time volunteering as an ordinance worker in the Manti Temple.
He was known for his work ethic, generous heart, and his love for family. He had a knack for making folks laugh, and will be fondly remembered for his quick wit, and ready jokes. Most importantly, Warren will be remembered for his faith in, and testimony of, his Savior, Jesus Christ. Though the latter years of his life were riddled with adversity, Warren’s convictions never wavered. No earthly struggle could stop him from counting his blessings, and praising his Father in Heaven. He taught his posterity to exclaim, “It’s such a pretty world today”, no matter the darkness they might encounter—such is his inspiring legacy.
Warren was preceded in death by his parents, Ernest and Hazel, brother, Paul, and daughter-in-law, Aleesha (Earl).
He is survived by his wife, Lorraine, and his children: Jed (Tammy) Fountain Green; Earl, Chester; Kim (Tennille), Cedar City; Joe (Anna), Spring City; Niel (Falen), and Jess (Chelsea), both of Fountain Green.
He is also survived by his siblings: Mark (Ann), Fountain Green; Ann (Scott), Providence; sister-in-law, Carolyn, Fountain Green; Noel (Tonya), Richfield; Alan (Brenda), Fountain Green; and his 25 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.
