By Staff | Sep 22, 2010

Congressman Connie Mack (FL-14) issued the following statement today on the passing of Sanibel native Sam Bailey:


“Sam was a pillar of the Sanibel community, from his family’s ownership of Bailey’s General Store to Sam’s many civic projects. I’ll always remember Sam as a kind, warm man who did so much for his hometown and the entire community. The people of Southwest Florida join me in mourning the loss of a true legend.


“Mary and I are keeping Thelma, Tee Ann, Toy Lynn, Tye Carter, and Sam’s entire family in our thoughts and prayers.”
