Fred Douglas Bailey, the loving son of the late Alfred and Maggie Bailey, was born August 22, 1948 in Daugherty, Virginia. He resided in Parksley, Virginia, where he answered the call to a peaceful eternal rest on March 22, 2020. Fred has joined his parents; two sisters, O’Neida Howard and Jennie Louise Satchell; two brothers, Preston Poulson and Roland Bailey; and son, Fredrick Abbott.

Fred was educated in the Accomack County Public School System. He was employed with Masons Farms, in Tasley, Virginia for over twenty plus years before he became ill.

Fred, affectionately known as “Weepie” or “Weep,” was a loving, devoted, and caring husband, father, brother, uncle, pop-pop, and friend. He was loved by everyone he came in contact with.

Fred appreciated the simple things in life such as, hanging at the race tracks with his friends, hunting with family, and selling his produce on weekends to the community. He had a sweet passion for cooking home cooked meals for his family and friends. Among his favorites were dumplings, baked macaroni and cheese, deer meat, and his famous sweet potato pies. He left that recipe to his daughter, CeCe. Fred was also known for telling jokes just to keep a smile on his loved-one’s faces.

Weepie fought a long battle with cancer, but not once did he complain. He continued to work throughout his illness to provide a comfortable and stable lifestyle for his family. He was such a humorous guy to his kids, grandkids, and great-grands.

Fred leaves to cherish loving memories; his wife of forty-six years, Lillie; one daughter, CeCe Abbott; adopted daughter, Kenya Dennis, all of Parksley, VA; three sons, Roscole (Nancy) Abbott of Wilmington DE, Fred Guntz of Baltimore, MD, and Wayne Abbott of Parksley, VA; fourteen grandchildren, Chris, Javonte, Jayden, J’Kwon, Kendrell, Shelle, Brittany, Isiah, Roscole, WyKwann, Shyann, Janiya, and two special grand-girls, Ciara and C’Asia; twelve great-grandchildren; seven siblings, Nancy Byrd, Dianne Cooper, Ruth Bailey, Larry Bailey, Sherwood Bailey, Alfred Bailey, and Doretha Bailey; six sisters-in-law, Deborah Smith, Grace (Bobby) Byrd, Mary Garvin, Barbara Abbott, Dorothy Mitchell, and Sadre (Walter) Dickerson; one brother-in-law, Johnnie ( Shirley) Abbott; special friends Terry and Wayne; friends of Hamptons Roads; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends.
