BAILEY, KENNETH L. - Kenneth L. Bailey of Tipp City passed away on January 10, 2008.  Law was his passion.  An ACTEC Fellow, he was drawn to the complexities of estate planning.  He brought enthusiasm and excitement to the puzzles of his clients' needs and devoted his life to helping them.  A big thanks goes to his loyal office staff for their long years of service.  In his 50 years of practicing law, he had the honor to work with many colleagues in this field and affiliated professions.  He admired them and enjoyed their camaraderie.  The lunchtime Round Table at The Bicycle Club was especially dear to his heart.  His life's second passion drew from his roots growing up in rural Auglaize County, Ohio.  A tree enthusiast, he studied rare and unusual specimens.  When feasible, he brought them to the 27 acre arboretum that he and his wife of 45 years, Barbara Studebaker, designed at their home.  Ken's family included children Heather and Grant and their spouses Frank and Lesley.  Grandchildren are Connor, Quentin and Brooke.  The caring nurses of Hospice of Dayton are owed heartfelt thanks for their work.  A celebration of Ken's life will be held at The Schuster Center's Wintergarden atrium on Friday, Jan. 18.  Clients, friends and family are welcome.  Informal visiting time begins at 3:30.  At 5:30, they will gather to share memories of his life.  Memorial contributions can be made to Heifer International, P.O. Box 8058, Little Rock, AR 72203.
