Warren Earl Bailey

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.

Funeral services will be held Monday, November 28, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. in the Fountain Green Chapel. Viewings will be held Sunday, November 27, 2022 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and Monday from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. prior to services, both at the church. Interment in the Fountain Green City Cemetery.

    A “Senior Will…” post in our 1967 Enn Ess Aitch yearbook:
    “Roger Poulsen leaves his cowboy boots to Warren Bailey (Peanie)”.

    Warren and Lorraine were both so much fun to be with in school from 7th Grade in Moroni to graduation in Mt. Pleasant. Although he did not play much sports that I remember, but both Warren and Lorraine were the blood, soul and lubricant of our class that made every day and week and month of school go smoother and easier. And the proof is from the dozens of witnesses and comments of classmates through the years.

    Warren filled those boots since school with hard work, generosity, love, tenderness, politeness, humor, a rolling laugh wound around his sentences from beginning to end and then it would wind it’s way to his listeners funny bone as he’d make another funny fact of life comment in an “awe-shucks” tone.

    Many thanks to he and Lorraine for a wonderful and unforgettable feast and hosting our 50th Class reunion at their beautiful ranch in June 2018 when they revealed unintentionally (to me) they both had bouts with cancer but were in remission I think.

    But cancer never seems to go away. It just lurks behind another organ or gland or whatever waiting an inconvenient or conflicting time to strike again. A cruel thing we humans are afflicted with, some sooner than others.

    But Warren and Lorraine did not let it slow them down much and kept their chins up and smiles and humor up bravely for years.

    Now they both can relax with clear satisfaction of a life well lived and a community well served by their family. They can reap the blessings of their numerous posterity and quality legacy as solid citizens of Ft. Green and Sanpete.

    Rest in peace, Warren.
    Live in peace and health, Lorraine until you both can hug each other close again and surely be encircled in the arms of our Savior.

    Heaven gained a good and faithful servant last week.
