Frank was a faithful member of Saint Rock Baptist Church in Harvey, LA, where he served as a deacon. Prayer and the word of God was a staple in Frank’s life, and he exemplified it through his devotion, preaching, and spreading the gospel. During his leisure time, Frank spent many years coaching baseball at Mel Ott Park, as he loved sports. He took pride in supporting his son and neighborhood kids with sports.

His authentic sense of humor has left so many wonderful memories for his loved ones to laugh and cherish for a lifetime.  Beloved father of Frank (Micah) Bailey, Jr. and Minister Dr. Iisha Bailey (Lionel) Drummond.
