Chuck Bailey

A Celebration of Life for Chuck Bailey, 75, of Cleburne will be conducted at 10:00 A.M., Saturday, August 12, 2023, at Cleburne Bible Church with Dr. David DenHartog officiating.

Chuck passed away Sunday, July 30, 2023, in Fort Worth. He was born August 28, 1947, in Beverly, Massachusetts to Everett M. and Eunice G. Foy Bailey. Chuck married Rebecca “Becky” Ann Crane Montgomery on April 26, 2002, in Cleburne.

Chuck grew up in Salem, Massachusetts and therefore loves everything edible from the sea. After graduating high school, he joined the United States Air Force and proudly served in the Military Airlift Command. Chuck spent one year stationed at Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam. Chuck spent twenty years in the Kitchen & Bath Industry managing a privately-owned home center and later as the General Manager of a Kitchen & Bath Cabinet distribution company in New England.

In January of 1989 Chuck moved to Texas to help the then financially troubled Brandom Manufacturing Company in Keene as their National Sales Manager. With the help of an excellent group of people they were able to bring Brandom to some of its most financially successful times. With the sale of Brandom in November 1999, Chuck decided to start Globe Marketing Group and represented numerous National Kitchen & Bath Cabinet manufacturers with dealers throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas.

Chuck and along with his wife, Becky, decided in 2012 to take their passion for the Kitchen & Bath industry and desire to work in Cleburne to start The Cabinetry and Tile Store at 915 N. Nolan River Road. They closed The Cabinetry in 2019 and purchased U & D Enterprises which supplies safety, industrial and janitorial needs to cities and municipalities. Chuck loved this business so much because he and Becky did everything together.

For many years he attended First Christian Church on Nolan River Road where he served in various leadership positions including Elder. He recently attended Cleburne Bible Church on Nolan River Road and was involved in several ministries with his favorite being jail ministry. In 2022 he graduated from the Cleburne Police Department Ministers Police Academy, but soon realized he was interested in something more full time. June of this year he started a new career as a Johnson County Corrections Officer which was going to allow him to delve deeper into jail ministry.

Chuck was active with The Cleburne Chamber of Commerce, where he served as an ambassador, on the chamber board, chamber executive board and as board chairman. He was a member of the Cleburne Economic Development Foundation, Tuesday Forum business group, the Cleburne Strong committee that was established to provide support for victims of Hurricane Harvey. He had also been a member of the High School Bond PAC committee and was President of the Cleburne Rising PAC that worked to get the bond passed for The Depot Baseball Stadium. He is always willing and eager to help where he sees a need and thought he could make a difference! He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Becky Montgomery of Cleburne; daughter, Heather Bailey of Cleburne; sons, Brian Montgomery and wife, Ladonna of Rio Vista and Jay Montgomery and wife, Angie of Burleson; sister, Bettyann Augeri and husband, John of Beverly, Massachusetts and Bonnie Latini and husband, Dick of Beverly, Massachusetts; grandchildren, Brooke, Tabitha, Blaine, Hailey, Ryder, Jennifer, Tiffany, and James; great-grandchildren, Addison, Gabby, Jaymeson, D.J., Kinsey, Nate, Elizabeth, and Easton.
