Visitation for Brian Bailey to be held Jan. 31 at Zion in Stewartville

Brian M. Bailey, 57, of Stewartville, died Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020 from complications of a lengthy illness with cancer at the home of his parents in Rochester.
Brian Mitchell Bailey was born Dec. 3, 1962 in Stewartville to David and Shirley (Mattison) Bailey. He grew up in Stewartville and attended school there, graduating from Stewartville High School in 1980. He then attended Winona State. Brian had a life-long career as a retail store manager, including many years at Apache Mall in Rochester and in the Twin Cties. He was employed as the manager of a Menards store in North Dakota when his health caused his early retirement and he then moved to Stewartville.
Brian was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Stewartville. He was an avid hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman. He made many trips to his favorite place - the Boundary Waters where he once spent eight weeks on a solo portage. He enjoyed running, following the Minnesota Twins, Vikings and Wild and time spent with his family.
Brian's family would like to thank Mayo Hospice for their loving care and special thanks to Pastor Bob Bergland and Joe Chase for their loving help in Brian's last years and their loyal friendship.
Brian is survived by his parents, David and Shirley Bailey of Rochester; two brothers, Brent (Kay) and Kirk both of Winona; five nieces and nephews, Hunter Bailey, Kaelen Bailey, Scott Bailey, Christopher (Nicole) Bailey, and Wyatt (Kavina) Bailey; several aunts, uncles and cousins, and longtime best friend, Joe Chase.
He was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents.
A time of visitation for family and friends will take place from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31, 2020 at Zion Lutheran Church in Stewartville.
A private family burial will take place at a later date.
Condolences and memories of Brian are welcome at
