Joel Dean Bai­ley, age 71, passed away at his home in Foscoe, North Carolina on Jan­uary 10, 2019. He was born July 19, 1947 in Ware Shoals, South Carolina to Joel C. and Inez (Rick­etts) Bai­ley. He was a 1969 grad­u­ate of The Ci­tadel, in Charleston, South Carolina. Fol­low­ing col­lege he en­rolled in law school at the Univer­sity of South Carolina, grad­u­at­ing in 1973. He then moved to Beau­fort, South Carolina where he prac­ticed for nearly 45 years be­fore re­tir­ing in 2017. He was a past Pres­i­dent of the South Carolina Trial Lawyers As­so­ci­a­tion and a mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Board of Trial Ad­vo­cates, a select na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion of trial at­tor­neys. A ded­i­cated trial lawyer and ex­cep­tional story teller, he was known for his quick wit, his sense of hu­mor and his gen­er­ous heart. More im­por­tant to him than his many pro­fes­sional ac­co­lades was the spe­cial pride he took in help­ing every­day peo­ple when they needed it the most. He re­mained a loyal alum­nus and avid sup­porter of The Ci­tadel and cher­ished his place in its Long Gray Line. Above all of this, he was a lov­ing hus­band, fa­ther and grand­fa­ther who will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. He was pre­ceded in death by his par­ents and is sur­vived by his wife, San­dra; his sons Chan­dler (Beth) Bai­ley and Ja­son Bai­ley; and his grand­sons Gus and Ladd Bai­ley. Fam­ily and friends are in­vited to eat, drink and cel­e­brate his life at the Beau­fort Yacht & Sail­ing Club be­tween 3-5 pm on Mon­day, Jan­uary 14, 2019. In lieu of flow­ers, the fam­ily asks that do­na­tions be made in honor of Joel D. Bai­ley to The Ci­tadel Foun­da­tion, K Com­pany, Class of 1969, 171 Moul­trie Street, Charleston, SC 29409-6230.
