Larry Bailey (Noonie), was the son of the late Cecil Boyd Bailey and Grace Leavell Bailey. He
was born into this union on March 16, 1951 in Keysburg, Kentucky. His spirit left us and his
earthly tabernacle on February 19, 2023 when Jesus gave him rest and called him home. No
more pain, no more doctors, and no more needles. Doctor Jesus showed up and showed out!
Larry accepted Jesus when he was a child and was baptized into the Keysburg Baptist family
under the pastorship of James R. Gardner, where he received whooping's on a regular basis, along with his brothers. Later in life he strayed away but the Lord brought
him back and he was added to the church family at New Zion Baptist Church under the
pastorship of Harold Carter, where he remained a faithful and dedicated member and served
on the the usher board until the Lord called him home.
