Nathan "LeRoy" Bailey Sr, age 61, of Granite City, IL, passed away on Thursday, May 16, 2013 at Gateway Medical Center, Granite City, IL. Nathan was born on September 22, 1951 in Granite City, IL, a son to the late Lloyd and Josephine (Paladini) Bailey.

Nathan was retired from Granite City Steel. On September 6, 2008, Nathan married Sandra Depper in Granite City, IL. He enjoyed working with his hands, playing horseshoes and softball. Nathan was the type of man who would do anything for anybody if they asked; he was also a big teddy bear at heart.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
