Dan Bailey Still Plodding Along After All These Years

Retired Hixson Gentleman Still Manages To Stay Plenty Busy

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - by John Hunt

Dan Bailey has been retired from the Tennessee American Water Company for more than 10 years now, so he doesn’t get in a hurry to do anything.

He jokes about how slow he runs these days, but he felt better when reminded that if it wasn't for people like him, there would be no overall winners in local races.

The 71-year-old Bailey is originally from Indiana, where he graduated from Wapakoneta High School.

For those of us not familiar with this fine institution, it’s where America’s first moon-walking astronaut Neil Armstrong grew up and went to school.

He later attended Ohio University, but didn’t graduate, before going to work.  He met his lovely wife Irene about the same time and they got married in October ’67.  They lived in Indiana for 15 years before moving to Chattanooga some 33 years ago.....
