Born on June 21st, 1992, in Littleton, CO, Bailey spent the first 14 years of his life in Aurora, CO. It was there that he filled the roles of son, grandson, and big brother. Bailey was a lifelong member of the American Motorcycle Association and the Rocky Mountain Trials Association. His love and talents led him to the AMA/NATC High School National Championship in 2006, as well as countless other motorcycling accomplishments. When Bailey wasn’t on the bike, he almost always had a fishing pole in his hand. Whether it was a lake or a river, Bailey took every opportunity to cast a line.
Upon the death of his grandfather, Cliff Tucker, in 2007, Bailey moved from Aurora to Cotopaxi, CO to live with his grandmother, Marceil Tucker. It was here that he continued to ride, fish, and explore his love for the outdoors. He attended Cotopaxi Consolidated Schools, where he graduated as Valedictorian in 2010. Bailey received a full scholarship from the Daniels Fund and attended the Colorado School of Mines. He attended the Cotopaxi Community Church for 12 years and was a proud member of the Republican party. His passion for working with his hands steered him towards his career in the trades. In 2016, Bailey founded the successful B&B Construction Company, allowing him to pursue his love of building and creating new things on a daily basis. At the time of his passing, Bailey was living in Thornton, CO. On August 1st, 2019, Bailey married his highschool sweetheart, Shelby.
