Terry and Pam Bailey


 

 
Terry Glenn Bailey, 54, and Pamela Hitt Bailey, 57, of Center, Texas, passed away together in an accident on February 15, 2017. 
 
Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday, February 17, 2017, at First United Pentecostal Church of Center. Funeral service for the couple will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, February 18, 2017, at the First United Pentecostal Church of Center with Bro. Andy Wilson officiating. Interment will follow Oaklawn Memorial Park in Center. 
 
Terry was born on March 13, 1962, in Center, Texas. He was a self-made man and rose to be one of East Texas’ most prolific entrepreneurs. 
 
Pam was born on August 26, 1959, and graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a degree in business. After the couple married on September 27, 1980, she quietly became the firm foundation of their immediate and extended family. 
 
For 36 years together, Terry and Pam impacted their families and their community with their truly unique partnership which blended very different gifts. Although their tribe seems to encompass a thousand cousins, the Bailey’s thrived on togetherness and the joy of a close-knit family. That philosophy carried over into their businesses where partnerships often involved family members, but even those who were unrelated became indistinguishable from blood relations. Terry was larger than life and could not help but to inspire. Pam, marvelously drew no attention to herself, while almost invisibly making everything in their complicated lives actually work. Terry caused every man to measure himself. Pam on the other hand, made everyone feel as though they measured up. To her, status and stature were irrelevant. Pam had a servant’s heart and a genuine caring nature. She made everyone she came across feel worthwhile. Terry and Pam Bailey had a passion for putting family first and have now left an enormous group with great sadness and an even greater legacy to carry on. 
 
Their survivors include 
Daughter: Carmen Mackey and husband, Ryan 
 
Son: Dustin Bailey and wife, Ginny 
 
Grandchildren: 
Falon Mackey 
Ivy Mackey 
Trevor Bailey 
Taygan Bailey 
 
Mothers: 
Ann Hitt 
Charlotte Bailey 
 
Sisters: 
Katha Bush 
Vicki Tomlin and husband, Richard 
Treasa Donnan and husband, Jim 
 
Preceded in death by 
Pam’s Father: Charles “Slick” Hitt 
Terry’s Father: Millard Bailey 
Terry’s Brothers: Mitchell Bailey, Delane Bailey, Johnny Bailey 
 
Pallbearers will be James Butler, Dee Winston, Kevin Rash, Jinx Hutchins, Luke Garrett, Jeff Bailey and Rial Taylor. 
 
In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made online to The Bailey Family Foundation at www.baileyfamilyfoundation.com. 
 
The family of Dustin & Ginny Bailey and Carmen & Ryan Mackey wish to thank everyone for their prayers and continued support through this difficult time.
