I did not know this man personally, but I believe he was related to my grandfather (Kenneth "Red" Bailes). I am sad to hear the passing of the last Bailes Brother and wish that I could have met him. May God bring you comfort and peace.

Till we meet again, Homer. I will always cherish the memories of playing back-up guitar for you when you sang at Harmony Chapel UMC.

Having had met him, shared several meals with him, and most of all picked gospel music with him was not only a privilege I will never forget but a distinct honor. His coming to Pine Grove UMC when I was a teen and my dad Bud introducing me to him as one of his music heroes awed me. He was one of the nicest and most Christian of persons I have had the pleasure of knowing. He will be missed, but only for a little while and we will see him again. God grant peace to his family. Amen
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Our parents were served by your father's precious prayers. They were members at the Roanoke UMC. Bro Bailes visited many times at their home in Lake Charles. He was a light to lead their way to the Lord. They delighted in his singing.

John, So sorry to hear about your dad. As soon as I saw the picture, it brought back all those stories of him and his brothers at the Louisiana Hayride you used to tell me. Good memories and his musical heritage continues through you. He lived a good life and made it further than a lot of his contemporaries. Take comfort in the fact his legacy lives on with his family here. Take care, Ken

We have lost one of our great treasures of traditional music. Meeting Homer through Jane and Jim Ball several years ago was one of the highlights of my experience as a folklorist. His talent and sense of humor were extraordinary. It was an honor to have known him.
Marcia Plauche left a message on December 3, 2013:
John, I know you are sad right now because of your Dad's passing and also because the last years have not been easy ones. But love is an amazing thing isn't it. You love and miss him because he was your Dad.
